High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 4:06 AM PST on January 25, 2015

Expires 6:00 PM EST on January 25, 2015


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 3 PM PST this
afternoon...

* waves and surf... 10 to 12 feet at 15 to 18 seconds. Combined
seas over 15 feet are possible.

* Timing... through this afternoon.

* Locations... from the Sonoma coastline south through the Big
Sur coastline.

* Impacts... localized beach erosion. Large breaking waves along
the coast will lead to increased wave run-up on beaches with
waves topping and washing over large rocks and jetties. These
large waves can be erratic and unpredictable. Use extra
caution near the surf zone as these large waves will be
capable of sweeping people into the frigid and turbulent
waters.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Remember that high surf is often associated with riptides... and
can be powerful enough to snap a surfboard in half. If you are
caught in a riptide do not swim against it. Instead... swim
parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current.
