Rip currents Typically, strong wind and swell waves push water over a sandbar allowing excess water to collect.
RIP CURRENTS KILL SWIMMERS EVERY YEAR HERE AT SOUTH PADRE ISLAND.
The tide plays an important factor in water depths in the surf.
The tide range, or difference between high and low tide varies between 1 to 3 feet.
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.
