Swim Tips

Swim near a lifeguard: Statistics show the chances of drowning at a beach with USLA-affiliated lifeguards on duty is one in 18 million.

Learn to swim: The best defense against drowning. Never swim alone. A buddy can help you if you get in trouble.

Don't fight the current: Rip currents are narrow and flow away from the beach. Swim parallel to the shore until you are out of the current.

Swim sober: Alcohol can reduce body temperature and impair swimming ability. Alcohol and drugs also impair judgment.

Leash your board: A surfboard or body board can be a life preserver, don't lose it. A breakaway leash will prevent entanglements with underwater obstructions.

Don't float where you can't swim: Coast Guard approved life jackets are OK, but inflatable devices can fail and falling off a raft can lead to quick drowning.

Don't dive headfirst: Hitting your head on the bottom or an obstruction can cause serious injury, including paralysis, or death.
