The beaches of The Outer Banks are beautiful.
Every year millions of people come to experience this.
I have had wonderful, memorable vacations for 30 years, until my recent visit in September of 2006.
My 32 year old sister-in-law, Kristina
(Eena, as her 2 year old nephew called her)
drowned as a result of a rip current.
Kristina’s death was tragic and preventable.
We do not want any other family to experience what we went through that day.
Education on rip currents and water safety can help you have a wonderful beach vacation
This website has been set up to answer all your questions
about rip currents and ocean safety on surf beaches.
Please navigate though the site to find information to protect yourself at the beach.
Check out the information on
What to bring to the beach.
While educating yourself and your family on safety at the beach can save lives,
there still remains a risk to swimming in the ocean.
It is always best to swim in front of a lifeguard.
