General Discussion / Re: is marina beach re-open?
« Last post by Cartman on Today at 01:15 PM »
Kids love to clamber over rocks. Sometimes they fall down.The rocks I am referring to are on the ground. It is impossible to fall off them into the sea. A scraped knee or twisted ankle are about the worst that could happen The lifeguards are there to assist people not to close down the ocean every time a two foot wave appears. the point is not just safety, it is safety at what price. They could permanently close all the the beaches and then  everybody would be even safer. And we all know how dangerous wet roads are. Why don't they close all the roads when it starts to drizzle. Of course you are correct, you could drown in an inch of water. I'm sure there must be a solution for that. And once again, the use of the term "stupid." Is it possible  for the wise men and women in this forum to disagree without resorting to insults?

Cartman, you did not take my advice as for your comment about the rocks it is stupid I for one would not like to fall on any rocks around this coast line

The point is safety you could drown in a inch of water and the seas again around this coast line can whip up in no time at all.

You may feel the life guard's are over cautious but if you got in to trouble you would hope they are there doing there job.

I've seen a child knocked over by a huge unexpected wave and dragged under.

I don't want to be involved in name calling but with reference to tragedies on Playa La Arena beach in the past 10 years I have seen 3 people receiving serious medical treatment on the beach, one of which proved fatal.

blarer,

Go have a look at the rock area the lifeguards seem to have permanently roped off on Playa de la Arena. While it is possible that somebody may trip on them and scrape a knee, there is absolutely no chance of being swept away. EXACTLY which tragedies at Playa de la Arena are you referring to? And, by the way, what's with the aggression and name calling. Edward Bear tells me to move house and you call me a bloody fool just because I disagree with you. You really are not a very friendly group of folks.

If you think the sea is safe enough to ignore the lifeguards when the red flag is flying, you're a bloody fool. 30 foot is no distance at all with the strength of the waves and undertows. I'm not confusing the beaches with with the rock pools. I've seen more than enough tragedies especially of Playa de la Arena beach over the years. With the strength of the tides, and undertows it often takes days for bodies to recovered from the sea, people have lost limbs by being dashed against the jagged rocks. Ignoring the lifeguards will not only put your life at risk but that of the people who will try to rescue you. Ironically most deaths in the sea around the Canaries are caused by cardiac arrest due the shock of cold sea. It is the Atlantic Ocean and the Costeros in particular are very dangerous.

Not confused at all. Talking definitely about Arena and not Crab Island.

Cartman ,if you don't like it here go somewhere else where they don't have lifeguards and zebra crossings.
