Here’s Rivera during last week’s Storm of the Month, which, Ocean Beach surfing-wise, was much better than average – hundreds of surfers were on the wet side of the Great Highway on this day:

Seas from the developing system will combine with the distant swell and build to 15-18 feet. Mavericks at Half Moon Bay is likely to see some of the largest waves reaching as high as 27 feet during high tide. Stinson Beach and Ocean Beach could see 11 to 18-foot waves. High tide on Wednesday will be at 2 a.m. and 12:38 a.m., Thursday at 2:40 a.m. and 1:12 p.m., and Friday at 3:19 a.m. and 2:02 p.m.

O. K. then.
Penn would play “Rick ‘Frosty’ Hesson, an ex-lifeguard, champion swimmer and mentor to the tragic Moriarty.”
That’s pretty much all the detail that’s out there right now. They’re still just talking about it.
