* surf and timing... high surf of 7 to 10 feet will affect west
facing beaches through tonight, with sets up to 12 feet at

beach parking lots will be possible with the high surf.

the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions. 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.
