Daily Surf Advisory:

Please note that South Walton Fire District Lifeguards are no longer on duty for the remainder of 2014. Lifeguards will resume patrolling the beaches of South Walton on March 14, 2015. Thank you to our dedicated lifeguards for their dedication and service.

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 light NE winds this morning, becoming SE this afternoon.

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….
