At Ocean Beach, there is a sign warning people to stay off the beach due to the dangerous conditions.
"You gotta be able to read the water. Any good surfer knows how to read the water and the currents, the directions, the swells and all that so once you learn all that you can dial in where you want to surf," said surfer Scott Schofield.
