    i talked to one of the ocpb captains today and he said its a possibility that pending on the wave size/ currents that they might not let people out in the water...he said people could go in up to their knees. . .

    Any thoughts?

    did they said that this is for surfers or just tourists without equipment?

    Hate to sound like the group Dad here, crew, but Norcal Transplant is right. Anyone of intermediate skill level or less (like me) ought to think hard about paddling out if the surf is really as big as they say it's going to be.

    I'm a NJ surfer and can handle the 5-6 foot Jersey Juice just fine, but when I tried to surf 10-12-footers in Laguna, CA last fall i got my A*S KICKED. Watched an ambulance haul off one guy who got caught in the beach break and broke multiple bones. Take it from someone who learned the hard way- surfing 10-foot-plus waves is a whole different ballgame.

    The guy I talked to I didnt get his name but he said pretty much for anyone, he said if for whatever reason something went wrong out in the lineup it would be dangerous to put one of his guards at "risk" swimming into well OH to DOH, he said it would be more like a major rescue effort rather than the normal one guard swimming out to help someone..

    Letting swimmers/vacationers go in "just up to their knees" in the forecasted conditions is highly negligent. Nothing like the power of storm surge long period swells combined with an incoming tide... 3 to 4 inches of flowing powerful water that becomes 4 to 6 inches that becomes larger and larger. And the freak sets that come out of nowhere.
