Tips for Your Safety & Enjoyment

  • Ask the lifeguard on duty about the condition of the surf so that you know before entering the water.
  • Look for flags regarding surf condition (red = not safe; yellow = use caution; green = safe; blue = marine pests present; orange = poor air or water quality).
  • Watch for rip currents. View NOAA video about rip currents survival guide.
  • When in doubt, don’t go in the water.
