Big waves roll into town for surfers in La Jolla

In the wake of extremely high surf conditions over the weekend, the National Weather Service in San Diego cautioned there remain strong currents and a high, dangerous rip current risk for San Diego’s coastal areas.

Surf height was in the 3- to 5-foot range and water temperature was 57 to 60 degrees. Surf heights were expected to decrease.

They’re here! This shot was taken the morning of Jan. 6 by Greg Wiest at Black’s Beach.
