For those going to the Orange Bowl and the beach.

Be careful, This is north of Dade Co. but it’s the same ocean. I was fishing Monday and watched an a$$hat nearly lose his life fighting a rip current. We pointed him toward a sand bar and he made his way out. He was one exhausted man and glad to be alive.

Glad you were there to help. It can happen quickly if you're not paying attention to the signs. You can usually tell the way the water is moving. Sounds like he was fighting it which is the natural response, albeit the wrong one.

Not to be confused w/ undertow or rip tides, they're narrow

fairly easily spotted in the daylights and people drown because they panic, like a lot of the posters on this bored.

Swim parallel to the beach, they're not wide and can be more fun than a 2 ticket ride at the Magic Kingdom.

One of the first things you learn growing up in FLA... respect.

Another thing you learn, and why I mentioned daylight above, is night bad, not only to see the water, but predators, cause they're big, dumb animals that make mistakes or have a taste for the stoopid.

Those big, dumb animals just happen be a tad higher on the morsel chain in that scenario.
