Surfers Ride Huge Hurricane Swell in Southern California

Storyful

Surfers are rejoicing in southern California, where a huge swell from Hurricane Marie was expected to generate waves as big as 25 feet on August 27. The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory, warning that the swell, which has been described as the largest in a decade, would cause dangerous rip tides and possible flooding.
