Think Waves FAQ’s


Myth: Rip currents pull you under water
Rip currents are surface currents, not undertows. An undertow is a short-lived, sub-surface surge of water associated with wave action. It can drag you down, but it’s not truly treacherous because you won’t be held under for long
How far do most rip currents flow?
A rip current, sometimes incorrectly called a rip tide, is a localized current that flows away from the shoreline toward the ocean, perpendicular or at an acute angle to the shoreline. It usually breaks up not far from shore and is generally not more than 25 meters (80 feet) wide.
What is the most common cause of rip currentsS?
Causes and occurrence. A rip current forms because wind and breaking waves push surface water towards the land, and this causes a slight rise in the water level along the shore. This excess water will tend to flow back to the open water via the route of least resistance.

RIPCURRENTS are unpredictable and can be found on lakes and ocean inlets. Where ever there are waves there are RIPCURRENTS

How to spot a rip current
Rip currents often look somewhat like a road or river running straight out to sea, and they are easiest to notice and identify when the zone of breaking waves is viewed from a high vantage point. … It is sometimes possible to see that foam or floating debris on the surface of the rip is moving out, away from the shore.
How to avoid stingrays

By shuffling your feet across the sandy bottom you can alert the stingray of your presence, they will uncover themselves and swim away. Stingrays don’t want to be stepped on anymore than you want to be stung!

For best results don’t touch the bottom. If you must touch the bottom do the stingrays shuffle followed by the stingrays tap. Tapping alerts them you are coming and they usually get out of the way.

How are rip currents formed?

RIPCURRENTS are affected by the bottom contours of the ocean floor. WAVES prefer the shallower sandbars and reefs. RIPCURRENTS prefer the deeper channels between sandbars and reefs. Water always seeks the path of least resistance..
