.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE THREAT OF DANGEROUS RIP
CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. BREEZY NORTHEAST WINDS THIS
AFTERNOON WILL ALSO PRODUCE A MORE CHOPPY SURF ZONE. THE HIGHEST
RIP CURRENT RISK WILL BE THIS AFTERNOON DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS. THE
SEAWARD PULL WILL BE ESPECIALLY STRONG NEAR PIERS AND JETTIES.
HEED THE ADVICE OF OCEAN RESCUE PERSONNEL AND ONLY ENTER THE SURF
NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

BREAK THE GRIP OF THE RIP. NEVER SWIM DIRECTLY AGAINST A RIP 
CURRENT. SWIM PARALLEL TO THE BEACH UNTIL OUT OF THE FORCE OF THE
RIP CURRENT AND THEN SWIM BACK TO SHORE.
