Playa La Barqueta - Missing Male Teenager

Recommended Posts

There were big tide changes with a moon approaching full.  My hunch is that might increase the rips a bit.  That said, it's usually a large swell that is the culprit at that beach.  The wave comes straight in and current runs up the beach then out with outgoing rips.  Pics of that drowning scene looks like very little swell...flat actually.  Drinking added to the mix with some current and drop offs might have been part of the cause.
