High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 8:42 AM PDT on August 27, 2014

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on August 28, 2014


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 3 am PDT Thursday...

* surf and timing... surf will peak today... then begin to subside
late tonight. Surf of 6 to 10 feet is likely across the
southeast portion of the coast.

* Locations... beaches from Santa Barbara to Rincon Point.

* Impacts... the powerful surf with very strong rip currents and
long shore currents will create extremely dangerous swimming
and surfing conditions... potentially life threatening. Sneaker
waves can bring unexpectedly large waves across rocks and
jetties near the Waters Edge... and suddenly inundate beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you do not have to be in the water... stay on the shore. Stay
off rocks and jetties and away from the Waters Edge to avoid
being swept away by sneaker waves. Never turn your back to the
ocean.

Remember... if caught in a rip current... swim parallel to shore
until you are free of the powerful current.
