http://www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast Australia has 11,485 beaches, most of which aren't patrolled and most of which are exposed to swell and surf. This season 12 people have drowned in rip currents. Those same rips also lead to most of the thousands of rescues performed by lifesavers every year. It's prompted a national education campaign on what do do if you get into trouble, with the message being clear: swim parallel to the rip to survive it.
