...beach hazards statement remains in effect from friday morning
through tuesday evening...

* surf and hazards...long-period southerly swell will bring
  building swell to south-facing southern california beaches
  friday into saturday...likely peaking late sunday through
  monday. although the exact details of the surf event are
  somewhat uncertain, there is a potential for high surf up to 7
  feet starting as early as saturday night...and continuing
  through monday for south- facing beaches of los angeles and
  ventura counties. in addition, strong rip currents and 
  longshore currents will be likely during this time period. 

* impacts...there is an increased risk for ocean drowning. rip 
  currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. large 
  breaking waves can wash people off beaches and rocks...and 
  capsize small boats near shore. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents...longshore currents...sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. swim near a
lifeguard. if caught in a rip current, relax and float. don't
swim against the current. if able, swim in a direction following
the shoreline. if unable to escape, face the shore and call or
wave for help.

...hurricane hilary to bring elevated surf this weekend through 
early next week...

.hurricane hilary over the tropical eastern pacific is forecast 
to continue on a west-northwest track. swells from this hurricane 
are forecast to build friday through early saturday and peak
sunday and monday. in addition...a smaller but longer period 
south swell will arrive late saturday and peak sunday into early 
next week. these swells will likely result in high surf at local 
beaches...especially along the south facing beaches of orange 
county and far northern san diego county. strong rip and longshore
currents will also be a concern. the surf height will depend on 
the strength and track of hilary...which is still not certain.
