The high surf advisory that was issued today has been canceled but, don't let that fool you. The swell is only expected to get bigger as we get into the week and it starts tomorrow.
Right now, the waves are between 7 and 9 feet high. Tomorrow the waves are expected to reach 13 feet and on into Tuesday night and Wednesday morning the swell is expected to hit the 20 foot mark.
When the big waves hit the central coast it may be a little scary to you and me but, the giant waves are a calling card for surfers.
Surfer, Cameron Rigby says, "On Wednesday, when they're planning on it to be the biggest, for sure be careful, obviously, because there will be a ton of rips out there but, just looking forward to things consistently, when we have a swell like this it gives us a pulse all week so, it's not like we get just like one day we get kind of all through out and the in-betweeners which we'll take all those."
While some people feel safe in the surf, others feel safer viewing the big waves from the comfort of dry land.
Strong rip currents can make swimming and surfing extremely dangerous even for the most skilled people.
