Hypothermia is so bad-ass that even moderate 70-degree (21 degree Celsius) water temps will sap your strength rather quickly. Southern California with all its sun and hot weather has summer ocean temperatures in the 68-degree range. Forget the sea monsters, sharks, and jellyfish out there, in water your body heat dissipates quickly, and that is the greatest danger to swimmers.

Then add in the unpredictable currents, invasive boats, rough water, constant changing weather conditions and the dangers mount. That is why long-distance swimmers have a safety boat trailing them for a good reason. Never swim in such waters without a safety boat trailing you. Be smart!

It doesn’t matter if you’re surfing, swimming, or boating on the ocean, you should return to shore once you begin to feel cold, or notice a change in the weather conditions. The sea must be respected for she can be a bitch!
