BE SAFE AT THE BEACH RIP CURRENTS The ocean can be dangerous at any time of the year and in any location. Every year people drown because they do not understand the dangers posed by the massive power and strength of ocean waters. The most important lesson? Learn to swim (before you go) and never swim alone! A rip current is a channel of water flowing away from shore. Rip currents, which are quite common, will typically form at breaks in sandbars or near structures, such as piers. A rip current can be very narrow or may be more than 50 yards wide. They can quickly increase in speed and therefore may change from moment to moment in terms of the threat they pose to swimmers and waders. The average speed of a rip current is one to two feet per second, but they have been found to be as fast as eight feet per second — faster than an Olympic swimmer! Rip currents can carry even the strongest swimmer out to sea, sometimes just beyond the line of breaking waves and other times possibly hundreds of yards offshore. If you find yourself caught in a rip current, the first thing to do is stay calm and don’t try to fight the current — it will win, not you. Instead, escape the current by swimming in a direction parallel to the shoreline. When you are free of the current, swim away from the rip current and at an angle toward the shore. OCEAN SAFETY TIPS • Always keep an eye on the surf — Large waves can hit the shore without warning, crashing much farther up the beach than normal waves. They can knock down both children and adults and drag them into deep water. • On steep beaches, be wary of backwash — Even normal waves can create a dangerous rush of water that can knock you off your feet and pull you out into the ocean. • Do not dive headfirst into the surf — Divers may hit hidden rocks or the shallow bottom, resulting in paralysis or death. • Know what a rip current is and how to free yourself if caught in one.
