* Beware of the Urban Runoff – It is advised to stay out of the water for 72 hours following any measurable rain fall. It’s always a roll of the dice, especially after a major downpour. The threat of getting sick is very real so if you do insist on taking the plunge be sure to use ear plugs an upon exiting the ocean, rinse off in hot water, use some alcohol based ear drops… and a nasal netti pot rinse for good measure never hurt anybody.
For Monday morning that swell will be on its last legs with chest high + sets for the best West facing beaches on the early morning tide push and from there the surf will continue to slow down throughout the afternoon.
