Slideshow: Spring Break at Baldwin Beaches

Posted: Updated:
"Looks pretty interesting but I don't think I want to get in that."

With waves breaking at two to four feet, "if you stay close it's not that bad but the bigger waves will take you under," says Abby Neighbors from Arkansas.

Staying out of the water is your best bet. Red flags fly over Baldwin beaches to emphasize the point. "The waves are really big. You need to watch out so you don't get knocked over by a wave."

That hasn't stopped everybody. Cameron Taylor says he couldn't help himself. "You can't go to the ocean and not get in it."

The good news warmer temperatures are expected over the weekend making the beach even more popular. The bad news, surf conditions aren't expected to get better any time soon. "The National Weather Service is predicting we'll have strong wind and high surf probably going to go up until Sunday morning," says lifeguard Scott Smothers.
