Rough Surf Saturday From Odette Swells

Small craft and rip current advisories are up until this evening.

(Sept 18, 2021) … The swells are five to six feet and will calm down some Sunday afternoon. The rip current risk will last into Sunday afternoon. Just be careful in the water. No one is swimming in this junk on a drive on beach, we know better. Okay I think we know better. Not just rip currents but debris is an an issue as well. Careful when you are casting while standing in the surf wash area. Never know what will wash in and gift wrap your leg.
