Here it is:

From the City's official Website:

The City Council, listening to feedback from residents, requested that the Chief of Lifeguards and City Manager take another look at the proposed surfing schedule. They have requested something that is more similar to last year’s schedule which was largely successful. The revised proposed schedule is available below.


PROPOSED SURF SCHEDULE

Proposed 5/17/13
CITY OF LONG BEACH
Surfing Beach Schedule – Summer 2013

All surfers must pay admission to the Beach Park and are subject to all
Beach Park and Beach Patrol rules and regulations.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to ongoing reconstruction of the boardwalk, some beaches may be inaccessible
and off limits to surfers for periods of time during the summer. Surfers and all beachgoers are asked to be
mindful and understanding during these times of temporary beach closures, as we continue to recover from
Sandy.

DESIGNATED SURFING AREAS, HOURS, AND YELLOW FLAG MARKERS
Continuing the successful policy from prior years, Surfing Beaches, Limited Hours Surfing Beaches, and
other areas that are open to surfing will be marked clearly with yellow flags by the City of Long Beach

as All Hours shall be open to surfing at all times, 7 days a week. Beaches designated as Limited Hours
shall be open to surfing until 12 noon on weekdays and 11am on weekends and holidays.

Surfers are hereby instructed that when the yellow flags are taken down on a limited hours beach, Surfing
in that area has ended and they must exit the water promptly. Lifeguards shall give a 10 minute warning
prior to taking the flags down to indicate when surfing hours are ending. Surfers on any beach who fail to
exit the water or promptly paddle or walk to an adjacent surfing beach when instructed by lifeguards or
other beach park personnel shall be subjected to fines.
