Today we received a text that the Beach and Surf Patrol have changed the flag status to Single RED, on October 7, 2018. We’ll update our status the next time Beach and Surf Patrol report a change in flag color. Always remember to check the actual flag at the beach before entering the water.
Depending on what end of the beach they start on, it can sometimes be a few hours before the flags are changed on this end of the beach.
With a Single Red flag, the Beach & Surf Patrol will not force you to leave the water, but the water is hazardous at Single Red, so keep the kids and weak swimmers out of the water, and exercise an abundance of caution.
Always swim with caution and remember, an absence of flags doesn’t mean the water is safe.
