Looking forward to the beach this weekend?

BeachThe LA Times is reporting that during this wonderful heat wave we’re having in Southern California, beachgoers may be warned to stay out of the water.

As the article reports, “The high surf will be the result of 50-knot winds that developed off Tahiti, producing 45-foot waves there – and that system is traveling north to Southern California.” While there is no official warning as of yet, lifeguards on the beaches will be keeping an eye out on the conditions of the water.

So it might be a little difficult for most of us to escape the heat and cool down in the water, but pro-surfers should be pretty pleased – the Hurley US Open of Surfing is going on in Huntington Beach until Sunday.
