Our friends from NZ had a lovely swim but they were very disappointed that dogs were allowed to swim amongst other swimmers and between the flags. Not a good look at all. Please pass onto the local authorities

Yeah they do do the surfing lessons then. But it will be cold. Maybe not for you Kiwi's but us Aussies will be too soft to be at the beach then!
