Even though red flag warnings are no longer in effect in some areas, beach-goers are still taking extra precaution due to the strong currents.
On Emerald Isle, there was just a moderate risk of rip currents but still some people decided to just lay in the sand or stand near the shore.
It was a decision to ensure their safety. Many described the waves on the beach Monday as "rough" and said they don't plan to go in as deep as they typically would.
It's something officials say they've seen all weekend.
Officials are urging families to continue taking extra precaution while on the beach.
