california coast early on monday morning. swell height will
increase to 11 to 13 feet on monday and continue into tuesday with
swell period 14 to 16 seconds. this will result in large breakers

precautionary/preparedness actions...
a beach hazard statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties...inlets...and piers. swimmers caught in a
rip current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.
a beach hazard statement for sneaker waves means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of unsuspecting beach
goers being swept into the sea by a wave. people walking along
the beach should never turn their back to the sea. fisherman
should avoid fishing from rocks or jetties.

new beach hazards statement...
