High tide will cause more powerful waves to break closer to shore and deeper water near shore..
Many people have been swept off the rocks and injured or swept out to sea in the strong rip next to the jetty while attempting to walk out the jetty during high surf.
This "undertow" can sweep a weak swimmer off of their feet and into deeper water, and he may panic as the wave crashes over his head.
The undertow disperses almost immediately until the next wave approaches, then the cycle starts again.
If you get caught in the rip, simply South Padre Island - the best beach in Texas!
South Padre Island, the gem of the Texas coast boasts miles of tropical beach front resort shoreline and a warm family friendly atmosphere that is perfect for your beach vacation.
An undertow can drown a person just feet from safety.
Riptides are found in channels, passes and cuts through which large volumes of water travel from the bay to the surf during the tidal exchange. Rip currents are commonly and mistakenly called riptides.
