Must-watch video on rip currents

If you’re going to the beach this summer, please watch this video on recognizing and avoiding rip currents. It’s a critical practical guide AND a great explanation of the physical oceanography of beaches and waves. This is especially important for my U.S. west coast peeps, since our strong waves lead to strong rip currents – there’s one next to the Scripps pier almost all the time. The ocean is wonderful but be safe!
