An undertow occurs when a wave is about to break on a shallow sandbar where a swimmer might be standing.
The water will suck underneath the wave as it breaks.
The tide plays an important factor in water depths in the surf.
The tide range, or difference between high and low tide varies between 1 to 3 feet.
There is a strong rip current located next to the jetty.
This rip current is the strongest and most dangerous on the entire Texas coast, and on big days it can suck you out to the end of the jetty into the "pit" where the biggest waves will break, and likely wash you back onto the rocks. Moderate Risk - Wave Heights 3-5' and/or Wind Speed 10-20 kts. Even the best Olympic swimmers are not able to successfully swim toward shore in the strongest rip currents., especially in the vicinity of groins, jetties, and piers.High tide will cause more powerful waves to break closer to shore and deeper water near shore..Many people have been swept off the rocks and injured or swept out to sea in the strong rip next to the jetty while attempting to walk out the jetty during high surf. Rip currents are life-threatening to anyone entering the surf. Undertow is a concern mostly for weak swimmers or the unfortunate non-swimmer.
