Over the last two years, Bruckner Chase and the administrators of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have been working on an ocean safety and awareness video series.
Chase explains, “The balance of the films will be released in June with some great supplemental pieces to be added to the collection. This is an innovative new approach for NOAA National Weather Service to focus on geographically specific hazards and safety solutions while also letting a host take the viewers through this journey to America’s most amazing coastlines.”

LeBoeuf of the Ocean Services and Coastal Zone Management,says,”While safety on the water is extremely important, it’s just as important to remember to be safe in the water. To that end, I’m pleased to share Ocean Today’s newest Every Full Moon video collection: Wave Safe.
These geographically targeted videos were produced to inform the ocean-interested public about natural hazards at the beach. The videos focus on being aware of dangerous ocean waves (high surf, shorebreak waves, and sneaker waves), and urge a mindset of situational awareness at all times by encouraging water enthusiasts to pay attention to constantly changing conditions on the shore.”
Chase visits coasts all over America and shares insider tips and local knowledge on how everyone can insure their visits to any beach stays fun and safe (see his introduction below):
