Watersports instructors are responsible citizens, and are members of our community. In addition to their duties as water sports instructors, many participate in the other sports as well, they are members of the wider water sports community, some are lifeguards, fishermen, canoe paddlers, sailors, family members. They are contributors to the economy and the community. Every water sports instructor I have met, or hired or trained, has the utmost respect for the beaches and the natural resources that they call home. Water sports instructors and their accumulated knowledge should be highly valued and considered as another important resources that should be protected for the benefit of the island’s ocean environment and the wider community.
