A swash is a salt water estuary that is fed by the ocean’s tides and flows through a small stream in the beach. Our business is right next to the Withers Swash. At low tide, you can walk through the swash because it is less than knee deep. At high tide, it is about 5′ deep. Be careful, the current can get pretty powerful during tidal changes. Also, we don’t recommend going up into the swash without shoes. There are shells and other objects that will cut your feet. Then, you’ll go home with an Ocean Watersports bandage instead of a cool Ocean Watersports T-shirt. Go with the t-shirt. Stay out of the swash, Junior.
