Even the best Olympic swimmers are not able to successfully swim toward shore in the strongest rip currents., especially in the vicinity of groins, jetties, and piers.
New views are added regularly, so be sure to check back for new releases.
Longshore Currents are simply the current that moves along the beach, usually in the direction that the wind is blowing or the waves are breaking.
You will notice the longshore current as you enter the water, causing you to drift along the beach. Not a hazard for swimmers, unless there is a north wind, the longshore current will sweep you towards the jetty where it will become a rip current sucking out to sea.
If you get caught in the rip, simply South Padre Island - the best beach in Texas!
South Padre Island, the gem of the Texas coast boasts miles of tropical beach front resort shoreline and a warm family friendly atmosphere that is perfect for your beach vacation.
