Alcohol & Swimming

Some people might look to consume a few drinks while enjoying their day at the beach, but it’s important to understand that swimming while under the influence of alcohol is a recipe for disaster. Alcohol not only impairs your judgement, but also significantly slows your reflexes – a dangerous, and potentially deadly, combination when it comes to the surf.

It’s simple – don’t drink alcohol and swim.
