FOL­LOW THE RULES

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

COTTESLOE Coun­cil will fol­low an east­ern states’ trend and in­stall signs at pop­u­lar surf breaks in­form­ing the growing num­bers of wave rid­ers of rules on the waves. At this month’s meet­ing, a staff report said the Cottesloe Long­board Club re­quested signs at the Iso­lated and Cove surf breaks be­cause of in­creased num­bers of surfers break­ing the rules, po­ten­tially caus­ing ar­gu­ments and breaches of safety.

The club feared some of the in­ci­dents could cause in­juries and sug­gested signs list­ing surf­ing rules at the end of beach paths, to which it would do­nate $500. Coun­cil­lors agreed to spend $3000 on signs at the sug­gested lo­ca­tions, in ad­di­tion to nearby Dutch Inn which is pop­u­lar with stand-up pad­dle-board­ers.
