Learn about Rip Currents

Rip Currents are the greatest danger to beach patrons. A rip current is caused by water piling on the shoreline from wave action and rushing out to sea through breaks in the sandbar.

To escape from a rip, swim perpendicular to the pull of the current. It is recommended patrons swim near a lifeguard. If there aren't lifeguards present then you should stay on the sandbars and stay away from dark water.
