Surf life-saving club calls on police to keep Asian tourists away from young tongs – while members resort to throwing water at the visitors and say they & # 39; like animals in a zoo & # 39; to feel
- Buses filled with tourists from China stop at Kurrawa Surf Club
- Asian tourists are swarming the beach to take pictures of children's training, parents claim
- The club has now asked the police to help because they feel like they are in a zoo
A tired rescue rescue club has turned to the police to help tourists avoid taking photos of children on the beach.
Buses filled with tourists from China have been stopping at Kurrawa Surf Club on the Gold Coast for the past eight months, parents claim.
Every time the tourists have flooded the beach and take pictures of the children aged 14 and under while they follow their life-saving training.
& # 39; It's like a tour stop, we're like animals at the zoo & # 39 ;, Nippers parent Matt Simons told Gold Coast Bulletin.

Nippers coach Nick Crilly said the tourists had made a number of children and parents uncomfortable.
He also said they had ruined some equipment while taking it to take their photos.
& # 39; I understand that if you come from elsewhere, shooting club club training can be exciting, but we have to draw a line if young children are involved, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; We recognize that it is not our beach, we do not own it, but there must be respect for the equipment and personal space. & # 39;

He thinks the tour buses should stop somewhere else or at least wait until their training ends.
The club is now calling on the police to help solve the problem.
However, because it is not punishable to take a picture of a child in a public place, the police cannot do much.
Senior Sergeant Paul Hunter said the Daily Mail police are working with the community to resolve any behavior with nippers in the area.
He said the police would be present the following training day to keep the peace.
