Course Outline

Surges are backward and forward water movement as it travels over a shallow area. There are circumstances where surges can be felt as deep as 60 to 70 meters/197 to 230 feet. It is best to avoid diving near shallow, rocky reef areas because the surge may carry you to the surface or knock you into the reef.
