a low risk of rip currents implies that wind and wave conditions are
not expected to support the development of enhanced rip currents.
however, rip currents are always possible, especially near jetties
and other structures. always have a flotation device with you in the
swim near a lifeguard. if caught in a rip current, relax and float,
and do not swim against the current. if able, swim in a direction
following the shoreline. if unable to escape, face the shore and call
or wave for help.
