especially close to piers, jetties and sand bars. Always have a
flotation device with you in the water.
All beach goers should remain aware of inherent dangers when
entering the surf including strong rip currents, swift
longshore currents, pounding shore break and shallow sand bars.
It is safest if you swim at a guarded beach and always heed the
advice of lifeguards and beach patrol.
