Water Safety at the Beach

  • The safest place to swim at the beach is between the red and yellow flags.
  • Mark a reference point on the shore, to avoid drifting.
  • Always read The Surf Conditions Board.
  • If you think conditions are too rough for you, don't go in.
  • Always swim with a friend, never alone.
  • Swim parallel to and not away from the shore when you swim long distances.
  • Swim in well- lit areas, so you can be seen if you get into trouble.
  • For your safety, leave the water immediately when requested by a lifeguard.
