Beach Safety - How to Identify Rips
Danger! rips and current. Here's a fun way to learn how to identify rips at the beach.
A rip is identified by:
- Discoloured or murky brown water caused by sand stirred up off the bottom
- A smoother surface with much smaller waves, with waves breaking either side
- Debris floating out to sea
- A rippled look, when the water around is generally calm
