    So if you are planning on heading out to the beach to surf or swim, lifeguards advise you be extra cautious along southwest facing beaches in areas like Oceanside and Orange County.

    In those locations, beachgoers can expect waves measuring anywhere from six to even 12 feet.

    While between Point Loma and La Jolla, the surf could be between five and eight feet.
