Opinion: Wave park safe learning environment

The saga continues.
The saga continues.

I HAVE six grandchildren ranging in ages from six to 21 and I often find myself in Melville and the surrounding suburbs when I visit my family who reside in the area.

Much of my time during these visits is spent watching them participate in weekend sports.

I have been following with great interest the debate regarding the proposed wave park, and I have attended information days held by both opponents.

In my view, the development would be a wonderful opportunity to bring families and communities together, to be outdoors and have fun.

More than half my grandchildren already surf and the others are very keen on learning.

It would definitely put my mind at ease knowing they will be learning in a safe environment with lifeguards on site and no risk of sharks or rips.

Yes, it’s change and yes, it’s new, but think of the positives it will bring with it.

Everyone can learn new skills, even 73-year-old grandmothers.

My only question is, will Urbnsurf Perth be offering seniors’ discounts?
