Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars and near structures such as groins, jetties, and piers.
Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any surf

If caught in a rip current, relax and float, and do not swim
against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help.
