A 16 year old boy and a twenty something year old man both drowned right down the beach from us Saturday. The surf was treacherous Saturday.
My daughter and I were in the water when I saw many people having a hard time getting out. The next time there is a red flag I will keep my daughter totally out after seeing this.
I recommend that if you can't swim real good then stay out of that kind of surf.

I left Sat. Didn't know about the deaths. The police were going up and down the beach yelling for people to get out of the water. So sorry to the families.

My family and I just left on Saturday and knew it was bad. I watched over my children extremely and was scared because it pulled me several times. This is a horrible tragedy. May God be with those families :(
