Water safety in Winter

There was a daring rescue off of Secret Beach 3 days ago and now a drowning in Poipu on a life guarded beach.

The ocean can take you if you're not careful and don't respect it's power.

Trying to swim at Secret Beach in the winter is never a good idea. In fact, it's almost never a good idea there. At least he made it.

Not so for the poor guy at Poipu. Sounds like he was alone. Never a good idea even if there's lifeguards. Too bad. I was just thinking it seems like it's been a while since the last drowning.

Thanks Dave for bringing this up and probably a good idea from time to time on this forum. So many people are so oblivious to the potential dangers in Kauai waters. I think it is good to occasionally remind that risky behavior can have tragic consequences.
