Anatomy Of A Prevent!...

Dateline: Mid morning, Friday, April 1st, 2016... along Santa Monica North just west of SMN Tower #15... as observed from Tower #14.....  This prevention sequence began with the lifeguard at SMN Tower #15 approaching on foot in the direction of the two swimmers to call their attention to their position in the water and to make a couple of preventions hopefully...  Simultaneously, the area vehicle was on patrol and observed both the guard and the two swimmers and used the p.a. system to gain the two swimmers attention.

Close up/Screen shot below of above photo shows how far out these two teenaged female swimmers were... at shoulder level with the visible approaching rip...
