When visiting the beach today, please allow additional distance between yourself, including anyone in your party, and the water. This allows the waves to run up the beach.
A high surf warning indicates dangerous, battering waves will hit the shoreline and result in very dangerous swimming conditions, including sneaker waves and rip currents. Swimmers should always swim near a lifeguard.

Be sure to always have your eyes on the ocean.
