The National Weather Service has issued a beach hazards statement for large northwest swells that will approach the coast on Thursday. Swells are expected to build to 8 to 10 feet on Thursday which will translate into larger than normal surf, possible sneaker waves, and rip currents along Point Reyes beaches.

People venturing near the ocean for the holiday should be alert for large waves capable of producing sneaker waves or rip currents which can sweep a person out to sea, especially at Point Reyes Beach North and South.
