Surf Lifeguards use the red and yellow flags to show the safest place to swim that day. During the day the flags may be moved as wind, tide or surf conditions change so always check where they are. Be Sunsmart. Remem- ber to apply sunscreen before you go out in the sun, reapply every hour or after you have been in the water. The higher the SPF rating, the longer the protection sunscreen offers. Be smart around rocks. Whether fishing or exploring at the beach, rocky outcrops can be very dangerous in large surf. Don t think a wave will simply wash around you, moving water is powerful. When fishing always wear a lifejacket and remember these rules: 1.Never stand on a rock outcrop that is already wet. It s a sure sign waves will be wash- ing over it. 2.Always face the ocean; never turn your back on the sea. 3.Have a clear escape path - don t get caught by the sea.
