The plan was to swim out past the breakers but no way today. There is a big swell coming and the beginning of it is powerful. Oceanside had a very strong rip current from the south to the north and the waves were breaking left in the same direction. Waves were way too powerful to try to attempt to get out past them. We relaxed and kicked out a bit but before the strong surf zone we stopped. The current had quickly pulled us north (left to right) in a matter of fifteen minutes or so a few hundred yards. The water was beautiful, warm, and relaxing. Not many beachgoers in the water. Too dangerous.
