There was an accident in which a bather drowned and died. It seems that it was a calm day of the waves. Why did he drown?
There are many causes. One of them is that they do not know that the seafloor topography is different.
Is it the topography of the seabed?
That’s right. This time, surfers will talk about the accident of a bather drowning.
Surfers spend a lot of time at sea. So surfers know that it’s not surprising that the topography of the ocean floor is different.
When surfing on a beach break, I find that there are shallow and deep waters.
Beach breaks have a sandy bottom. The sand moves. Therefore, it is natural that the water depth varies depending on the location.
It seems that some swimmers think that the water depth increases proportionally from the shore to the offshore. For example, think “40 feet from the shore is shallow.”
But that’s not the case.
That’s right. Many areas may be shallow. However, there are some deep parts. For example, the surf points I often go surfing are sometimes deep 40 feet from the shore, but very shallow 70 feet from the shore. It’s not always this terrain. Sometimes.
How can swimmers avoid the danger if the terrain is not always the same?
There is no way to avoid the danger altogether. At the very least, it’s important to know that there are deep and shallow areas. Sea bathing is a very fun event. But the sea is always dangerous. It is important to act carefully.
If I hadn’t surfed, I wouldn’t know about the topography of the ocean floor.
Recently, there was an accident that killed a bather. The person who died was short trousers and a T-shirt. He was in a place where his feet reached the bottom of the sea. However, he seems to have reached a deeper depth after being swept away a bit by the break of the waves. It seems that he panicked and drowned there. In addition to the topography of the seafloor, the addition of waves and currents increases the risk.
It’s a scary story.
It is important to be aware that the sea is a dangerous place.
