The group was on a stretch of beach without lifeguards when they say the waves suddenly got very rough.
One teen was taken to a hospital. His condition has not been released.
Officials are warning swimmers and beachgoers along the East and Gulf Coasts of high surf and rip currents from the tropical storm.
