Daily Surf Advisory:
The beach flags for the beaches of South Walton will be YELLOW today. Yellow flags indicate that moderate strength rip currents do have the potential to form or that moderate strength rip currents are prevalent across our County.
Wave heights: Around 1 foot, with ENE winds @ 8 – 12 knots.
Moderate rip currents can be potentially dangerous for weaker swimmers. Lake washouts and soft edges of sand bars can also add to rip current development. Swim near a Lifeguard Tower.
Inexperienced paddleboard and kayak users should always be very cautious as the winds and currents can push you away from shore and out past the second sand bar very quickly. It can be difficult to return to shore and very easy to capsize if you get side on to the wind.
IF YOU DON’T KNOW, DON’T GO….
