RIP Currents: Break the Grip

RIP tide

The roaring waves are beautiful to listen to and playing in them can be fun, as well. But, please be extra vigilant to watch weak swimmers. They will tire quickly and can also be bowled over and under those strong waves and disappear in an instant. Learn about rip currents and how you can free yourself from them and in which direction a person pulled out by one, might end up. They happen in deceivingly calm areas…check out the diagram below. Non-confident swimmers might benefit from wearing a life jacket near the water on rough days…or those swimsuits with built in flotation (though they are not as safe as a lifejacket).
