* A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS WILL
  LIKELY SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ALSO MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS
  ARE DANGEROUS FOR ALL SWIMMERS.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR IN THE VICINITY
  OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
