Growing up landlocked in North Texas, I never lost any sleep over rip currents or beach conditions.  Now that my home is on the Gulf Coast, I am very aware of the beauty and ferocity of the waters of the Emerald Coast.  As visitors come to our area to enjoy the sand and salt water, it is important that they know the current beach conditions before they set out on their day at the beach.

Be safe and enjoy your time at the beach!
