PDT Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
high surf advisory, which is in effect from 6 am Friday to noon
PDT Sunday. The beach hazards statement has been cancelled.

* Surf... high surf 14 to 20 feet is expected to develop by Friday
morning and continue through Sunday morning along northwest and
west facing beaches. A strong storm in the Gulf of Alaska has
generated a large long period swell. This swell will move into
the coastal waters north of Point Conception bringing a sudden
increase in the large surf. Surf will increase from 10 to 14
feet to 14 to 20 feet by late Friday evening and persist into
Saturday morning. The surf is expected to diminish some by
Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning but remaining above 10
feet through the period.

* Locations... northwest and west facing beaches across the
central coast.

* Impacts... large powerful and damaging waves and strong currents
will create a risk of ocean drowning. Sneaker waves can suddenly
overrun previously dry beaches and jetties.

* Tides... high tides will be moderately high around 5.7 ft at
9:45 am PDT Friday and about the same tide height on Saturday
around 10:10 am PDT.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
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.
