Big Surf Pounding Orange County Today

I think we're going to have to run down to San Clemente and check it out:
At least one local city has issued a warning to its residents along the coast about the impact of two large ocean swells that have hit Orange County and will peak on Sunday.

Seal Beach officials say there is a reasonable chance that ocean water may reach portions of the boardwalk along Seal Way in the midmorning hours Sunday. Sand bags are available for residents at Seal Beach Lifeguard Headquarters. Significant damage is unlikely, the announcement said.

Surfline.com has forecast the surf to be high all day Sunday at many spots along the Orange County coast, with waves reaching up to 21 feet near Anderson Street at the border of Huntington Beach and Seal Beach.

Waves are expected to reach up to 18 feet at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point and 16 feet at Lower Trestles in San Onofre State Beach.
I saw one report predicting 18 feet at San Clemente Pier. We're going to go down there this afternoon with the camera and see what we can see. I may have some video later.
