• Don’t surf or swim alone – always buddy up
• Be aware if you see diving birds and baitfish, sharks may be present, leave the water
• Avoid sandbars, river mouths and steep drop-offs – sharks could be present
• Don’t surf in murky waters
• Check conditions and assess the risks
• Respect the ocean – sharks are important for healthy seas
