High Surf Advisory issued until Friday 1p.m.

OCEAN BEACH (KGTV)- Big waves continue to pound the coast today. A High Surf Advisory is issued until Friday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Waves reached heights up to eight feet Thursday and along Ocean Beach Pier, some waves reached 10 feet.

As we normally see during high surf, advanced surfers made their way to the beaches.

In Ocean Beach, crews continued their work to repair the pier despite the high surf below. Waves up to 10 feet crashed into the pier. One Ocean Beach resident tells 10News, "you know we spend all this money to live here and this is one of our facilities, it's sad when its closed".

Crews are still on track to reopen the pier by Memorial Day, according to the City of San Diego.
