The storm that we’ve been tracking for the last week is finally arriving this weekend– and we aren’t talking about boxing. This Saturday through Wednesday we will see higher than normal swells, with the Wedge seeing waves up to 20 feet high.
Monday or Tuesday will likely be the biggest waves, but we’ll start seeing major increases as early as Sunday morning, with waves returning to normal after Wednesday.

Remember, the waves are extremely dangerous and we will be seeing some very strong rip tides, like the ones just 10 months ago where we lost one of our lifeguards. Please, don’t put others in jeopardy. Watch the water from afar, but remain safe and dry. These waves cost lives.
