Huge 'New Zealand Swell' Hitting California
Massive waves slamming into California's coast - killing at least one person and causing millions of dollars in damage - are being labelled the "New Zealand surf" because of where they are coming from.

In a rare event, a big weather system between New Zealand and Antarctica has generated a heavy Pacific wide swell, bringing the waves to California.

watch out for Rip currents California

4. I've always thought New Zealand is "swell". . .
There's no need for them to hit me for it.
