Customer Question

My girlfriend bought me the HERO3+ Silver edition for Christmas. I just got it out of the box. My question is: Can I wear this camera when I go sand surfing on the dunes around Lake Michigan? Also, I wipe out in the sand frequently, and end up with sand in every orifice. Will sand damage my camera? Any suggestions to protect the lens, etc.?
