MALIBU, CA (CNN) – Surf's up – literally!

Big waves, generated by Tropical Storm Marie, are hammering the California coast.

Naturally, surfers are taking full advantage of the bodacious waves.

While Marie is not a direct threat to California, the National Weather Service says large swells are expected through Friday, with set of waves between 10 and 15 feet.

Forecasters expect very strong, life-threatening rip currents, as well as some coastal flooding.
