WA Lockdown: "surfing is not deemed exercise"
During the snap lockdown in Perth on the weekend, video captured by Tania Robbins appears to show police patrolling the coast, telling surfers on loudspeaker that "surfing is not deemed exercise. Be responsible, go home."
In previous lockdowns across other states, surfers were still allowed to get their daily dose of exercise, though limited to a certain radius of movement. Lucky for the CT the lockdown measures have since eased, otherwise we'd all be watching the pros doing squats and burpees on the stairs overlooking Main Break.
