MINIMUM HAZARD – Moderate Surf and/or Currents.
Jellyfish are present!
SURF ZONE FORECAST: WAVE HEIGHTS: Around 1 foot, with light SW winds. RIP CURRENT DEVELOPMENT PROBABILITY AND RIP CURRENT STRENGTH: moderate…a moderate risk of rip currents means that wind, wave and tidal conditions do support the development of rip currents. Even a moderate rip currents can be dangerous for weaker swimmers. Lake washouts and soft edges of sand bars can also add to rip current development. Rip currents have the potential to form very quickly at any location across South Walton’s beaches. Deep channels between the sand bars are where the water brought in from the wave action funnels back out. If you are unsure if rip currents are present, please check with a lifeguard, or stay on the shore.
