ASB MAGAZINE: In line with new measures announced by the Australian and Victorian governments to ease coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, URBNSURF Melbourne will remain closed in May 2020. While ocean surfing has been permitted, this is consistent with advice issued by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) on Monday, 11 May 2020 that all public swimming pools, outdoor pools, and ocean baths remain closed under the new measures.
However, we remain optimistic that as coronavirus restrictions are relaxed further in the coming weeks and months, we will be permitted to re-open sometime in Winter and have perfect waves pumping again in Tullamarine.
As our closure has been extended, we’ve made the decision to undertake our annual Winter maintenance early. This will ensure that our lagoon and wave-generator are in top working condition, and to avoid a shutdown in August when these works were originally planned.
As the situation develops, URBNSURF.com, will post updates via a fortnightly email newsletter The Forecast, as well as Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
