Re: Keswick Clarendon Beach Closure

Sure it’s better with self policing. But as OP stated, doesn’t work! So, something else needs to be done to keep access. Or buy a wing surfer. Haha, wingsurfer- its the future. I would suggest to incorporate a not for profit association for now. Then you will have a voice. Governments don’t respond...

Guincho can be pretty gnarly when the waves are 3m+
