In the new version it doesn't seem to show whether the beach is closed unlike the old version, maybe it's somewhere not obvious but I can't find it.... Thanks for the change, it's clear now!

great app. wish it didn't constantly bang on about donating to the surf lifegards. They are paid, and have the best job in the world. Yes, of course there is volunteers, but the perks for being a member of a beach side club make it worth it. From a funding point of veiw the government does not exactly neglect the SLS..... So why is an app that everyone who dowloads to get saftey information being used to monetize for a charity? I am certain that the app was developed and paid for with my taxes
