URBNSURF opens again today
Relief for Melbourne surfers!
Following the Victorian government's announcement to ease lockdown restrictions, URBNSURF has drawn up a schedule of sessions and thrown open the doors. They open, however, with a few caveats including locality - only surfers who live within 25kms of the park can surf - and masks must be worn except when surfing.
This week the opening times are as follows:
- On Wednesday, October 21st: From 6am-10am, and 4pm-9pm.
- On Thursday, October 22nd: From 6am-10am, and 4pm-9pm.
- On Friday, October 23rd (Grand Final Public Holiday): From 6am-10pm.
- On Saturday, October 24th (Grand Final): From 6am-7pm.
From Sunday, October 25th onwards they'll open from 6am-10pm. Click here to see their timetable.
The park’s reopening will see URBNSURF fire up two new surf sessions - Cruiser and Expert. The former is designed for novice surfers who enjoy riding pointbreak-style waves on a longboard or fish, while the latter delivers slabbing barrels for experienced riders. Each was sharpened up during the COVID downtime.
Damon Tudor, URBNSURF Group CEO, said “We’re excited to welcome Melburnians for some much-needed stress relief and surf time in our lagoon. After what has been a challenging year, we’re stoked to provide surfers, families, and friends with the opportunity to get outdoors, reconnect, and enjoy perfect waves in a COVID-safe environment.”
While initially only surfing guests will be permitted, as restrictions ease further spectator visits will resume, and more of the surf park’s areas and amenities will open.
