Surf’s up San Diego—a high surf advisory is in effect for the next few days, bringing in big waves for boarders.

The National Weather Service issued a statement warning people that San Diego County beaches will have a large swell coming in during the early evening on Wednesday, lasting through Friday night. NOAA is crediting the swell from a powerful storm that originated near New Zealand.

Surf height is expected to reach as high as 7 to 9 ft., with Thursday having the most powerful waves. Strong rip currents are expected to last until Sunday.

San Diego Lifeguards are gearing up for the swell with a busy Labor Day weekend. The combination of the holiday and promised waves mean lifeguards will be on high alert, said Lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum.

“We have a large surf action plan, and each station strategies,” he said.
