Helping to Keep Your Valuables Safe Whilst You’re in the Water
Police are warning the thousands of surfers and open water swimmers who flock to Gower beaches to be on their guard because of thieves who target cars and other belongings left on the beach. Over the past few years, Ttieves have been targeting cars parked by surfers and swimmers at the beach when they know the owners are in the water, making away with thousands of pounds of valuables.
And the problem is not just limited to Gower as thieves are hitting unsuspecting surfers and swimmers right around the Welsh coast.
Surfers in particular have traditionally left their car keys under a wheel arch or under a rock in the beach but unfortunately, this recent spate of thefts has seen credit cards, keys, mobile phones, and sometimes even cars have been stolen.
Advice from South Wales Police
Now the police and some councils around Wales are looking at ways of protecting surfers and swimmers’ belongings when they hit the water.
This video produced by South Wales Police about crime prevention at Caswell Bay sums up the problem faced by local surfers and swimmers.
There is no doubt that due to these persistent thefts, surfers and swimmers feel more vulnerable when they are spending time in the water.
