Heavy seas off Otter Rock, Newport

Although the high surf advisory has been cancelled for the Oregon Coast, there remains a small craft advisory for heavy seas off the coast. As you can see from these pictures taken Wednesday afternoon, it’s not the best surfing or swimming conditions. In fact there are numerous sporadic rip currents that can sweep a kayaker, surfer or swimmer out to sea like they’re on a fast-moving conveyor belt. In a matter of a few minutes, someone can be swept off-shore a quarter mile or more. If caught in a rip tide, do not paddle or swim against the current. It’s futile. Always swim or paddle parallel to the beach. Eventually you’ll break free of the rip tide and then you can head for shore.

The smartest thing, however, is stay out of the water until the seas lay back down.
