A strong winter swell brought waves between 4-feet and 7-feet to areas like Huntington Beach, where surfers flocked to get their share of waves.
The latest run of swells has made it a great winter season so far for local wave riders.
A mega high tide in the morning that reached nearly 7 feet made for a lot of water movement in the morning and sand erosion at some spots, but a low afternoon tide exposed rocks and tidepools.
There’s another pulse of swell coming in late Wednesday, but for the most part, surf will be slightly smaller, in the 3-foot to 5-foot range, through the week before dropping slightly for the weekend.With warm weather expected the next few days, nearing 80 degrees by Friday along the coast, beachgoers should use caution if going into the water. Rip currents will be strong, so always check in with a lifeguard to ask about hazards.
