What you can see in this article
Strong offshore days are dangerous.

Offshore and onshore

There are two types of winds on the coast: offshore and onshore.
Offshore is the wind that blows from land to the sea. Onshore is the wind that blows from the sea to the land. It is often onshore during the day, but it can also be offshore depending on the pressure distribution and terrain.

Strong offshore danger

The surfer is floating in the water. If the offshore is strong, it will be washed offshore and you will not be able to return to the shore.

How can I get back if I’m washed off the coast?

If offshore is strong, there may be no way to go back. If you are swept offshore faster than you paddle, it is impossible to return to the shore.

I’m very scared.

Offshore may be more dangerous than lip current. The lip current is part of the ocean. If you move with a paddle, you will arrive at a place without lip current. You can return to the shore from where there is no current.

Do not enter the sea during strong offshore

The safest thing is to stay out of the sea. Even if you arrive at the sea, do not enter the sea on dangerous days.
Also, even if the wind is weak when entering the sea, the wind may become stronger later.
In that case, always check how much you are being swept away.
If you notice that it is being washed off the coast, return to the shore while you are still physically fit.
