...beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...
* hazards...strong rip currents and dangerous shore break.
* timing...through this evening.
* waves and surf...4 to 5 feet thursday morning...diminishing to
3 to 4 feet late thursday afternoon.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
a high risk of rip currents means wind and or wave conditions
support the development of very strong rip currents...especially
in the vicinity of jetties...piers...and sandbars. these rip
currents will be life-threatening to anyone who enters the surf.
be especially cautious with outgoing tides which improve rip
current formation. all beach goers should remain aware of
inherent dangers when entering the surf including swift longshore
currents...pounding shore break and shallow sand bars.
rip currents are strong...narrow channels of water that flow out
to sea. if you become caught in a rip current...remain calm. try
to swim on a course that is parallel to the beach until you get
away from the rip...then swim at an angle in to shore. do not try
to swim back to shore directly against the rip...since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
always heed the advice of lifeguards. pay attention to flags and
signs posted near beach access points and lifeguard stations.

dangerous shore break of 4 feet or greater can cause neck and
spinal injuries...affecting even the most able swimmers. shore
break occurs when waves break directly on the beach potentially
causing neck and head injuries.
always heed the advice of lifeguards. pay attention to flags and
signs posted near beach access points and lifeguard stations.
