The water was not as clear as Riis Park or Jones Beach.

Frank Pia did a lifeguard film review of the beach and developed many great observations on how people became distressed swimmers. He did it in the late 70's or early 80's.
People drown silently, not yelling or waving.
His film changed the lifeguard management systems of the day.
Thank you Orchard Beach:)
