Yesterday was the scariest day of my life…
I’m living in Australia, as many of you know, with Fiance for a while. I grew up in Chicago where there is no ocean (I’ve been in the ocean.. but never like in Australia).. the beaches in Australia can get pretty rough. Yesterday, I decided to be brave and swim out to a sand bank I saw people standing on. I didn’t know the rip was so strong and I was getting dragged further and further from where I wanted to be and into really rough water where I couldn’t touch. I got bombarded by a gigantic wave and couldn’t get to the surface for a really long time.. I was seriously swallowing tons of water and I think I was going to drown, when Fiance came and seriously saved me.. I don’t think I could have gotten myself out of that situation without his help.
Just thought I’d share because it was REALLY scary!

Thanks guys! I was so thankful that he’s such a good swimmer and observant enough to notice I was in trouble. I never thought I’d have a problem in the ocean but it can get really bad.. be careful out there, guys!

@kingytobe: what beach were you at? we were at Shelly (manly) and Clifton Gardens (mosman) and yes, they were predicting a very strange undercurrent over the weekend, most surges last for about 5-8secs but we were experiencing up to 15-20sec surges.
sydney surge and rips can kill if you are not prepared and remain calm – please be careful, im very glad you were ok *hugs*
