Learn to swim before heading on to the beach, it saves lives and never swim alone even if you aree a strong swimmer. If your kids aren’t strong swimmers or are just learning how to swim, make sure they stay close to shore. Actively supervise your children at all times- when in water or on the shore.
Avoid: Avoid head first into the ocean as murky water can obscure underwater obstacles in the shallows. Protect your neck by always entering the sea with feet first. Avoid alcohol; it not only inhibits judgement but also accelerates dehydration. Do not pretend drowning. Avoid rip currents that are powerful channels of water that flow perpendicular from the beach; they can sweep swimmers far from the shore.
Tip: To get out of a rip current: Remain calm. Don’t fight the current. Swim parallel to the shore: rips are usually narrow; swim left or right until you no longer feel the current. Then swim to shore.
Drink water at regular intervals. Apply sunscreen often, and use broad-spectrum lotion that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Young children require a higher SPF sunscreen than adults because their skin is more susceptible to UV rays. Apply lotion 15 to 30 minutes before heading outside for optimal absorption. Other sun-protective measures wear a broad rim hat and sunglasses are mandatory. And obey all caution warning signage on the beach.
