Big surf advisory in effect until Monday afternoon

Strong surf was expected to pound San Diego County’s beaches Monday, prompting a high surf advisory to remain in effect until late this afternoon, forecasters said.

The advisory, which went into effect Friday, was to expire at 4 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

The agency was expecting surf heights around 5 to 8 feet with sets of 10 feet Monday morning.

By Monday afternoon, surf heights were expected to drop to about 2 feet with larger sets becoming less frequent, according to the Weather Service.

On Sunday, at least a dozen people were rescued from the strong surf, including one man who went to the hospital with back injuries.

The injured man jumped into the water off Sunset Cliffs and couldn’t get out because he wasn’t a strong swimmer, said San Diego lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum. A nearby surfer rescued the man and took him to shore, where paramedics treated him and took him to a hospital.

Another man was caught in a dangerous situation in an area called “The Hole” near La Jolla Cove, according to the lieutenant. Most of the other rescues took place at Boomer’s Beach near La Jolla Cove.
