No swimming on the North Shore

Ocean Safety officials advised no swimming at all North Shore beaches, west of the Hanalei Pavilion to Kee Beach, due to high surf and dangerous ocean conditions.

The National Weather Service posted a high surf warning for all north and west-facing shores of Kauai and Niihau through this morning.

Lifeguards reported waves of up to 25 feet and rising on the North Shore with very strong rip currents.

Spectators were advised to use extreme caution.
