Safety from riptides
One of the biggest risks while at the beach is from riptides. Riptides are fast and powerful ocean currents that can quickly reach the shoreline and drag away with them even expert swimmers. Most lifeguard rescues on the beaches happen for saving people from riptides.
If you get caught in a riptide, the first thing to do is to keep calm. It is easier said than done, but it is an important step to get safely out of the powerful currents. Try to swim parallel to the beach so that you can pull yourself away from the riptide. If you find it difficult to swim this way, attempt to float until the current weakens. Then try to swim back to the shore. Also, call for help by waving your arms to catch the attention of the lifeguards on the beach.
