If you are caught up in a rip current, never swim against it!
When you are surfing and somehow you are in a rip current and actually any kind of currents, it is always recommended that you will never let yourself swim against it. You will be exhausted and lost many energy when you are doing that.
Therefore, you’d better keep yourself calm and swim by following along the current while you are trying to swim aside of it in steps. Then when you are in a sea where there is no current at all, then you can swim to the beach slowly.

You may will have the poor vision at night and when its dawn where that won’t really help for your surfing activity. Besides that, both of the times are also the best times for feeding and hunting time for the sharks. Many surfers have been eaten by the sharks and you should have take this seriously because it is truly sacrificing your life when you are underestimate this.
Another thing to avoid the shark attack is by surfing in a group. Mostly, shark will only attack the individual, so you will be safer as well when you are with the others.

Even the professional surfers are still drowned by the waves and many times, surfers are even injured by the rocky bottom. Therefore, you should make sure that the beach is safe as well as checking the tide level so you can really minimise the risk of being injured.
