Expires 9:00 PM EDT on August 29, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Friday
afternoon...

* surf and rip currents... surf will range from 4 to 6 feet and
strong rip currents will exist at times this afternoon through
Friday.

* Locations... exposed south facing shores... including Jalama
beach in Santa Barbara County as well as Port San Luis... Avila
Beach... and Cayucos in San Luis Obispo County.

* Impacts... the surf with very strong rip currents and long
shore currents will create dangerous swimming and surfing
conditions. Sneaker waves can bring unexpectedly large waves
across rocks and jetties near the Waters Edge... and suddenly
inundate beaches. South swells also have a history of
producing damage to boats docked at Port San Luis.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats to beach and
surf zone safety are expected or occurring. Caution should be
used when in or near the water. Stay near occupied lifeguard
towers and never swim alone. If caught in a rip current... swim
parallel to the shore.
