Low Risk
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.
Moderate Risk
A moderate risk of rip currents implies that individuals planning to enter the surf should check with local beach patrols first. Be sure to swim within sight of a life guard, and never swim alone or at night.
High Risk
A high risk of rip currents means dangerous and potentially life threatening conditions exist for all people entering the surf.
