The granite boulders are barnacle encrusted and urchin infested.bring some type of flotation device to be used for rescue in case someone falls into the surf.This "undertow" can sweep a weak swimmer off of their feet and into deeper water, and he may panic as the wave crashes over his head.The undertow disperses almost immediately until the next wave approaches, then the cycle starts again.There is a strong rip current located next to the jetty.This rip current is the strongest and most dangerous on the entire Texas coast, and on big days it can suck you out to the end of the jetty into the "pit" where the biggest waves will break, and likely wash you back onto the rocks.High tide will cause more powerful waves to break closer to shore and deeper water near shore..Many people have been swept off the rocks and injured or swept out to sea in the strong rip next to the jetty while attempting to walk out the jetty during high surf.
