Man, you should have been in OB this morning.
High surf arrived on Monday in San Diego County, pounding local shores and bringing out surfers and big-wave watchers. The swell was big enough to prompt lifeguards to close the Ocean Beach Pier.
The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory, which is in effect until 10 p.m. on Monday. The waves could be as big as 8 feet, according to the advisory.
Farther north, the surf was still high -- with sets up to 8 feet being seen infrequently -- but lifeguards said they had performed no rescues and that it appeared that only the more-experienced surfers were entering the water. The Oceanside Pier is much higher than O.B.'s; the waves would have to be 15 feet or higher to close the pier in North County.
