Following new Government Guidelines issued on 11/05/20, if you decide to go Surfing in England from 13/05/20, our advice is as follows:

  • MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES – Stay 2 meters (6 ft) away from others in and out of the water.
  • SURF WITHIN YOUR LIMITS – If in doubt, don’t paddle out. There are currently no RNLI Lifeguards in Operation on Beaches in England. UPDATE 30/05/20 – Some Beaches now have RNLI Lifeguards in Operation. Visit for information. If you do see someone in trouble in the water, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
  • RESPECT LOCAL COMMUNITIES – Consider the distance you travel to surf & the emergency services/hospital resources in that area. Many local facilities are currently closed.
  • RESPECT OTHER SURFERS – Avoid crowding beaches and busy peaks.
  • PROMOTE GOOD SURF ETIQUETTE – Don’t snake or drop in, smile, be kind & surf safe.
