Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 9:59 PM PDT on March 29, 2015

...Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Monday evening...

* hazards and timing...surf will range from 3 to 5 feet with occasional sets to 6 feet. Frequent strong rip currents and strong long-shore currents are likely.

* Tides...the lower high tide is expected to occur in the evening with the higher high tide occurring in the early morning.

* Impacts...elevated surf will bring strong rip currents and long-shore currents to area beaches along with a risk of sneaker waves. Long period swell also causes more powerful surf and a potential for minor beach erosion during times of high tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats to beach and surf zone safety are expected or occurring. Caution should be used when in or near the water. Stay near occupied lifeguard towers and never swim alone. If caught in a rip current... swim parallel to the shore.
