How to escape a rip current

How to escape a rip current


(Waves crashing) ♫ (Ambient Music) ♫ – Rip currents are really dangerous. The current is so strong that most people can’t even swim against it and will get pulled right out. Even, in some cases, an Olympic swimmer will get pulled out. A rip current is a small
coastal stream that flows out through the surf zone. When you come to the beach,
you’ll see surf breaking then you’ll see a calm spot. That calm spot’s usually
where the rip current is between the breakers. It’s deceiving because
that area is the calmest and it’s where most people would think, “Well, this looks like
a good place to wade.” That area’s the dangerous part. Where you really want to go are where the waves are the biggest. (Wave crashes) Ocean Beach is a very dangerous beach and it’s considered one of
the most dangerous beaches because of the rip currents on the beach. See the drainage into here? The holes? The shallow area? Wave’s gonna come up
in here and it’s gonna all channel into here. It’ll snap and it’ll flow out. It’ll find the least path
of resistance basically. That’ll be a little channel going out. It doesn’t have to be a huge channel, just has to be a depression in the sand, the topography below the water. It can go anywhere from
two meters a second to eight meters a second. That’s why you need to
pay attention to the ocean and not get sucked into these things. When you go to the
beach, go with a friend, go with a buddy. Someone to keep an eye on you and you can keep an eye on them. The first thing to remember
if you do get caught in a rip current is to remain calm. The rip current will only take you out past the breakers. It won’t pull you down. It won’t take you way,
way out into the ocean. Relaxed, get your bearings,
see where you are, and see how fast you’re going out. Don’t swim against and don’t
fight against the current, just let it take you
out beyond the breakers. Float there, find your
bearings, swim parallel to shore for about 25 yards or so. You’ll be out of the rip
current most of the time and then swim, surf the waves, basically, back to the beach. On all the beaches in California, you should always look out for the ocean. You should never turn
your back on the ocean. If you can’t swim, you
should never go in the water. You should always learn to swim. If you’re wondering about
going out, don’t go out. When in doubt, don’t go out.

    The video doesn't just sound a word of caution, but educates as well. A must watch for swimming enthusiasts in our region. Thank you, Francis! πŸ™‚

    Wow, I used to play in the shallow water where rip currents form. I always liked how it feels when the water rushes past my ankles and back into the ocean. I never knew that was a rip current. πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜©
