there are different kind of "supervision" on beaches possible: supervision
that the equipment at the beach is fine (including for example chairs,
umbrellas, sport pitches), or lifeguards who do not control the beach but
the water in front of the beach, and do only check for people endangered by
the water, not for things that might be damaged. The supervision tag
definition is not clear on this (or if you read it literally, is not
applying unambiguously well to lifeguards).
