This was all part of a series of massive northwest swells to roll in along north and west shores.

A high surf warning has been dropped for all north- and west-facing shores, with surf reaching around 35 feet in some spots on Thursday.

However, another large swell is expected to arrive by Friday night.

Beachgoers are urged to take caution as strong breaking waves can be dangerous.
