It was a dangerous weekend in the water along Auckland's west coast at the weekend.
About 35 people had to be rescued across the weekend.
There were at least three major medical interventions at Bethells beach on Saturday, with 14 rescues within a 45-minute period.
Swells of 2m to 3m caused strong tidal rips at Muriwai.
Three people were also rescued from a strong rip later in the evening, with one taken to hospital.
