A message about ocean safety
As the lifeguards like to say, if in doubt, don't go out. And speaking of lifeguards, it's always good to consult a lifeguard about ocean conditions before entering the ocean. Our ocean changes daily. That beautiful, placid lake you might remember from a summer vacation years ago could be a big wave surfer's dream come true during a different time of year. Here are some basic safety tips to keep in mind:

 1. Swim at lifeguarded beaches only.
 2. Spend a minimum of twenty minutes observing ocean conditions before hitting the water. Waves come in sets, and the ocean may appear calm between sets of waves.
 3. Be observant of wet rocks. They are an indication of how far the water may run up on the beach. 
 4. Do not fight a rip current, if you get caught in one. Go with it. Wait for the current to dissipate; then, swim back to shore. 
 5. Watch river mouths and stream openings for strong currents.
 6. Use the buddy systems. Do not swim alone.
