Hope - Rip Writing

Have you ever been caught in a rip when swimming at a surf beach?
It can be dangerous and frightening. Well

I’m here to tell you how to identify a rip, how to avoid one and what to do if you are caught in a rip.

A rip is found in surf beaches. The water comes into shore in waves but it has a way to go back out. This water flowing back out to sea is called a rip.

Normally, there are warnings at the beaches with high rip rate so make sure to look out for those when swimming at an unknown beach. Beaches with high rip rates are highly recommended to stay away from for safety. So if you follow my tips you have a better chance of surviving.

You can identify a rip by the colour of the ocean. When the sand is black the oceans gets darker, when the sand is white the sea get lighter. Another way to identify a rip is how the ocean looks, if the sea is calm and the water are ripples.

If you are caught in a rip instead of panicking stay calm, that will keep you away from drowning and you will get tired. First, see if you can touch the ground, then put your hand in the air. Don’t wave your hand because it will look like you are waving to someone. Try swimming to the sides. When you are there the waves can push you into shore.

Take these tips and use them when there is a problem in the sea. These tips will help you survive from a rip. Remember when you are in trouble in the sea always, always KEEP CALM.
