Right now at Woolamai Beach. 🌊 ☀️ 🌊 ☀️ (9:45am)
The conditions today look perfect. There is no wind and between the waves the water looks calm and inviting but as the #drone
photo shows, the water is deeper and moving away from the sand. THIS IS A RIP CURRENT and the cause of many drownings across Australia every year.
As a member of @woolamaislsc
I have seen over and over again poor swimmers choose to go swimming in the rip unaware of the danger they are putting themselves and others in. These people experience the feeling of being pulled away from the shore, before panicking and exhausting themselves to the point where they can no longer keep their head above water... So as Summer approaches please take the time to educate yourself on rip currents please swim between the red and yellow flags. 🚩🏊♂️🏊♀️🌊🏊♂️🏊♀️🌊🚩
