Beaches, braais, sunshine, parties, swimming and surfing. Sounds like heaven on earth.
Not waving but drowning
There’s no two ways about it – the sea is dangerous. It might be lovely and cool and inviting, but underneath the surface of the water lurks danger in the form of currents, sudden dips on the ocean floor, rocks, bluebottles and, if you are extremely unlucky, sharks. One wave can knock you over and one current can pull you out to sea. Enjoy the sea, but don’t get in over your head. Never swim alone and don’t try and show off.
