High surf brings out surfers, rescues and warnings

COAST CITIES — The National Weather Service has issued a high surf warning for the San Diego County coastline, with waves 7 feet to 9 feet high, and some sets reaching 11 feet likely on southwest facing beaches through late Friday.
In other beaches, waves are expected to reach 4 feet to 7 feet.
The high surf will also be bringing strong rip currents, dangerous swimming conditions, possible coastal flooding and beach erosion.
Oceanside lifeguards have performed 10 rescues since the high surf began Thursday. Most of the rescues have been rip current related, said Lifeguard Lt. Emile Lagendijk.
Oceanside beaches are seeing waves 10 feet to 12 feet, currently.
The high surf is expected to last through Labor Day weekend.
