High Surf Advisory

A person stands on a cliff at Shore Acres State Park as a wave crashes over rocks along Cape Arago. The Pacific Ocean put on an impressive display during the Oregon Coast's first high surf warning of the season in December 2019. Waves up to 25-feet tall brought onlookers and photographers to viewpoints along the coast and forced the U.S. Coast Guard to close several bar crossings north of Coos Bay.
