I kept getting pulled under by the waves

I live in Florida, near the Atlantic Ocean. My family and I like going to the beach and playing in the water. One day in the fall, when the water was starting to get cold and the waves were big, my brother, John, my dad, and I went to the beach. We saw a few people playing in the water, so my brother and I asked Dad if we could go in.

My dad didn't have his bathing suit on and didn't want us to go out in the ocean by ourselves because of the big waves. So he told us to stay just knee deep. We grabbed our boogie boards and ran into the water. The waves were crashing farther out, and my brother and I rode the foam that came after them into shore. But there was a current that took us sideways down the beach. These currents are pretty common, and we knew enough to get out of the water and walk back up the beach to where my dad was. We did this every time we got about 100 feet or so down the beach.
