will your mom only let you go out after you give her the rip forecast? if you don't even know why that's a dumb question you should stay on the beach. and who the fck at a surf shop needs to know if there is going to be rip current danger. anyone worth 2 schits is actually looking for one to dry hair paddle out.
Be sure to check out the semi-floating staircase and piling forecast too. They'll fck u up way worse than a rip could any day.
