High Surf Advisory

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on July 22, 2018
Statement as of 2:07 am EDT on July 22, 2018

... High surf advisory from 8 am to 7 PM EDT today...

* locations... ocean exposed beaches of the South Coast, cape and
islands.

* Timing... all day today.

* Surf zone impacts... 6 to 8 foot breakers possible. Large
breaking waves will be dangerous to anyone who enters the surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current, sometimes mistakenly called an undertow, is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water, and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

If you are a poor swimmer and are caught in a rip current, swim
parallel to the beach until out of its pull, then swim back to
shore. Another means of escape for good swimmers is to ride the
current out until it dissipates, then swim back to shore outside
of the rip current.

Do not attempt to swim directly into the rip current, it can
exhaust and drown even the strongest swimmer.

Heed the advice of the beach patrol and swim only at guarded
beaches. Be especially cautious near piers and jetties, where rip
currents can be enhanced.

In addition, viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas well
away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more than
twice the average wave height, which can sweep a person into the
water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area. Falling into
turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in injury that
reduces the chance of survival.
