As spring settles in...thoughts turn to body surfing and boogie boarding at the beach. But hold on for just a moment...
Did you know that nearly 10% of all beach injuries reported by our lifeguards rank as serious? And serious includes spinal injury from diving into waves and hitting the sand. The sand is unforgiving. And as currents change from a northwest swell in winter months to southwest swell in summer months, the sandy bottom of beaches change along with it. This can create an unknown danger when people blindly dive into waves for that burst of refresh on a hot day.
So...take a moment and wade into the water before diving in. You won't be a wimp for doing it...and you could save yourself from a life changing accident.
And thank you for making me Your Orange County Real Estate Connection.
