Rip is like a stream full of water that pushes water out and away from the shore. So if the rip pushes you away and you're trying to get back to shore put your one hand up and try to stand up. Then wait for the lifeguards to come and get you. Rips are hard to get out of so you should know rules when you are in a rip.
