Surfers in Cornwall to stay home following Government advice on COVID-19

Surfers in Cornwall to stay home following Government advice on COVID-19

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 1:16pm 25th March 2020.

Surfers are being instructed not to go to the beaches of Cornwall after the Government announced a UK lockdown. 

Surfing England put a message out on its Twitter site saying "The message is clear. Don't go surfing". 

It went on to say that no one should be travelling other than for essential reasons listed in the Government's advice. 

"There may be a lucky few who can walk out their door and jump into the sea, but for the vast majority of us who need to travel to the beach, it should now be considered off limits. 

"This is a tough call to make, but one we should all respect as we collectively fight the spread of Covid 19."

Spokesperson for Surfing England

"With the current measures in place, the advice is clear - stay at home, stay safe and do not go surfing. 

"Do not put you or others at risk with non-essential travel. Do your bit. Protect our NHS and essential services. Stay safe and take care"

Luke Fox, Ecommerce Manager, Ann's Cottage Surf
