Life threatening rip currents are likely in the surf zone.   Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins... jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards...beach patrol... flags and signs. Swim near a lifeguard.   If you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. Remain calm...do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for help. If you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.   &&   $$ <span-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif">
