  1. I am curious to know what the flags stand for. The boards look like they night be boogie boards. The picture is so inviting even if I am not sure about the flags and the boards. A gorgeous day to be at the water. genie

  2. Hi Genie. The flags are part of a surf patrol. The red & yellow flags show swimmers which area of the beach is safest to swim in. The b&w flags are for surfboard riders and are to tell them not to surf between this area so swimmers don't get hit by them. The boards on the beach are for the life savers if they need to rescue anyone.
