The Inertia

Early on, New Zealand enacted one of the more strict Coronavirus action plans in the world, closing its borders and ordering immediate quarantine while its documented cases were still low. The policy has worked thus far, and this week the government lifted limitations from what it was classifying as Level 4 action, a country-wide lockdown, to Level 3 where people could begin to move about the country. At the same time, Tai Wātea, a surf therapy program for at-risk youth which hadn’t been allowed to operate was deemed an essential service (shops, theaters and restaurants remain closed), bringing relief to a segment of society that needed relief more than ever. Further proof that surfing is, without a doubt, good for you.
