detail

A riptide is a global ocean event naturally occurring. A death grip pull is extolled on the unlucky swimmer as they are sucked out to sea by the invisible force of the current pulling ever harder- useless to swim against. The only protocol for survival is simply let the terrifying grip of the current take you where it's going until gently releasing you as little as twenty feet away as if never there.
