- Locations...surf will be highest on exposed west and northwest facing beaches. Local sets to 12 feet are possible near Ventura Harbor. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A high surf advisory means that high surf and rip currents will make swimming and rock jetties dangerous. Remember...if caught in a rip current...swim parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current. Always swim near a lifeguard.
