Waves in the Landes

The action of the tide and the waves on the sand generates phenomena of currents that can be violent and form what are called baïnes.
If you find yourself trained in a Baïne the best action to do (until the lifeguard are with you) is especially not fight against this current that takes you off .Keep calm and let you drift , try to swim parallel to the beach and exit from the baïne .
