A high surf advisory for the south-facing shores of all islands has been extended through 6 p.m. tonight.

Beachgoers can expect to see surf in the 6- to 10-foot range, according to weather officials.

Forecasters warn of strong shore breaks, and rip currents that will make swimming difficult and dangerous. Beachgoers are urged to listen to ocean safety officials and to be cautious.

Sounds like you're not from the islands. The reason for the constant surf reports is to inform beach goers so as to minimize accidents and deaths from drowning. In the last couple of days, the lifeguards were busy saving people from drowning due to the high surf. For some people, it may not be readily evident when they go to the beach if there is a lull in surf. This is one way to inform people before they get there so they are prepared.
