High surf advisory in effect for California's central Coast

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) — Forecasters have issued a high surf warning for the central Coast, saying beaches between Monterey and Sonoma counties could see waves up to 30 feet high.

The National Weather Service says the warning remains in effect through Friday afternoon.

They say that at some off-shore locations, including Mavericks in Half Moon Bay, one in 100 breakers could approach 55 feet.

KSBW reports big waves brought out surfers of all levels on Thursday but at least four people had to be plucked from the ocean off Capitola Beach after they couldn't handle the 20-foot high waves.
