  2. Always wear a buoyancy aid
  3. Carry water, snacks, spare layers and a jacket with you
  4. Avoid offshore winds (when the wind is blowing you away from the beach)
  5. Be considerate and mindful of other water users


  1. Ever get to too close to wildlife
  2. Forget to check the weather forecast
