Hurricane causing huge waves in California

CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A third day of hug waves is expected off the south California coast, thanks to Hurricane Marie far off the coast.

Wednesday, spectators lined the Shore of the Wedge in Newport Beach to watch the world's best surfers ride 20-foot waves.

Lifeguards have been trying to keep anyone out of the water who does not have strong experience.

They were kept busy rescuing several swimmers throughout the day.
