Course Outline

Surges are backward and forward water movement as it travels over a shallower area. There are circumstances where surges can be felt as deep as 60 to 70 meters, or 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.
