Have you ever wondered how a sea rip works or what a sea rip is or way you are floating out of mum and dad's site?

A sea rip is a strong current that drags you out to sea, away from the shallow.  A calm current may drag out to the neck of the rip which is where it becomes really dangerous.  The neck of the rip is a really strong current that can pull you out hundreds of meters away from shore. There is a point where the rip stops and it has calmed down. Going back the same way you came isn't going to help no matter how hard you try. Swim sideways then diagonale to get back to shore so you don't keep getting dragged further away from shore.

When in a rip DON'T PANIC be smart and don't fight back. WAVE YOUR ARMS AND YELL FOR HELP!!!
