Surf life­guards at Ti­tahi Bay Surf Life Sav­ing Club have had a busy sum­mer at the beach so far. Pa­trol cap­tain Nick Mulc­ahy said, “Our surf life­guards have been very proac­tive, en­cour­ag­ing people to swim be­tween the red and yel­low flags, ed­u­cat­ing them on rip cur­rents, and rock fish­ing safety, as well as urg­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic to stay within their lim­its.” Con­di­tions at the beach this sea­son have been haz­ardous for swim­mers at times, with a com­bi­na­tion of strong winds and plenty of swell. This has re­sulted in strong rip cur­rents at ei­ther end of Ti­tahi Bay, as well as rips mov­ing through­out the beach, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing an out­go­ing tide. While sev­eral people have been res­cued at Ti­tahi Bay this sea­son, Nick en­cour­ages all com­mu­nity mem­bers to get out and en­joy the beach safely.
