* surf and hazards... long-period southerly swell will bring
building swell to south-facing Southern California beaches

through Monday for south- facing beaches of Los Angeles and
Ventura counties. In addition, strong rip currents and
longshore currents will be likely during this time period.

currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large
breaking waves can wash people off beaches and rocks... and
capsize small boats near shore.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. 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.
