Notice the break in the waves, that is what a rip current looks like. If you’re caught in one, swim to the left or right to exit the break or do the dead-man’s float until you are free of the break.
Because of the storms in the Gulf today, there are extremely high waves with lots of rip currents. Don’t ruin your vacation by going into the water when there are double red flags. Your life or the life of someone trying to save you is not worth a swim. If you see someone caught in a rip current, don’t try to save them, call 911. There are trained professionals who know the proper way to save someone.
Enjoy the power and beauty of God’s creation from afar when there are double red flags; the life you save may be your own.
