Even when the risk is low, rip currents can occur at any time,

flotation device with you in the water.

A moderate risk means wind, wave and tide conditions support the
development of stronger or more frequent rip currents along the
beaches. Only experienced surf swimmers who know how to escape rip
current should enter the water.

All beach goers should remain aware of inherent dangers when
entering the surf including strong rip currents, swift
longshore currents, pounding shore break and shallow sand bars.
It is safest if you swim at a guarded beach and always heed the
advice of lifeguards and beach patrol.
