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. Always pay particular attention to dune lake washouts, while they may appear to be fun, they can cause a rip current that will take you out into the gulf well away from the shore.

Wave heights: 1-2 feet, with NE winds @ 10-18 mph.

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. Always swim near a Lifeguard.

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….
