Just about anything can be a danger.

Strong current can be a danger, especially when anchored - not that you'd anchor in a rip, but if you got caught side-on in there, it could be problematic.

The thing though, is that if there's enough surf cranking for there to be a rip, then you'd have to be pretty keen to head out in the first place. I'd be more worried about the surf.
