Know your water limits before you take a dip in the sea.

Wales is world-famous for its breathtaking coastline, and powerful waves are a big part of what makes it so special.

But it’s important to respect the water, as waves can easily knock you off your feet. Be aware of rips, which are strong currents running out to sea. Did you know a rip current can move at 4.5 mph? That’s faster than an Olympic swimmer! When the sea conditions are rough, enjoy the power of the water and waves from a safe and respectful distance.

Respect the sea: If you’re caught in a rip current, don’t panic or try to swim against it. If you can, stand and wade. If you can’t stand, swim parallel to the shore, raise your hand and shout for help.
