While swimming between the safe flags on seminyak beach in from of the hotel, I was suddenly swept into a rip current. It happened in about 20 seconds, I tried to swim to my friends, it was impossible. The guys who rent surf boards in front of the hotel, came to my rescue with a surf rescue board. 3 local guys put their life in danger to save me, I am forever grateful and will remember them in my prayers. It happened to quickly that I didn't have time to panic.
I believe the guys are employed by the hotel, I cannot find any other way to publicly thank them for their courage and speed with rescuing me. A message to other swimmers on this beach, stay within the flags, know your limits and stay safe.
If this service is provided by the hotel, thank you for enabling the surf rescue board, it's a precaution and I hope no tragedies will occur on this beautiful beach.
