    There is a high risk of rip currents.

    Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
    from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
    sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
    piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards...beach patrol flags and

    Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
    float. Don't 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.
