Haulover Beach Ambassador Training

Special outreach to gay naturists for Haulover Beach Ambassador training on Saturday, May 14 in Miami, FL
by Seth P., Newsletter Editor, South Florida Free Beaches

Do you spend a lot of time on Miami's nude beach? If so, here's your chance to give back by volunteering as a Beach Ambassador (BA) to help maintain naturist standards on Haulover Beach and keep it safely nude for all to enjoy. Sign up for and attend this training at Haulover Beach to become part of a wonderful corps of volunteers. Get a cool hat to wear and free parking on duty days!

A key factor in keeping Miami’s naturist beach a safe and pleasant place to visit is the Haulover Beach Ambassador program. BAs serve as beach monitors and greeters, a combination of block watch and welcome wagon. They are extra eyes and ears for Ocean Rescue (lifeguards), park staff, and police, observing and reporting any problems, welcoming "nudecomers" to the beach, providing information on park rules and guidance on naturist etiquette, answering questions about the organizations that sponsor the BA program, and sharing with visitors their knowledge of Haulover Park amenities, local hotels and restaurants, etc.

The north end of the clothing-optional section is the part that’s most popular with the guys, but it doesn't have sufficient BA coverage. South Florida Free Beaches / Florida Naturist Association and B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute are reaching out to gay patrons of Haulover Beach who frequent the north end and have the community knowledge and sensitivity to perform well there as BAs.

The next Beach Ambassador training is scheduled for Haulover Beach in Miami on Saturday, May 14. In case you can't make it to that one, the dates of subsequent training sessions in 2016 are Sunday, August 21 and Saturday, November 12. Seasonal residents are welcome to participate.
