The Wedge – Newport Beach

I used to frequent the wedge while living in Newport Beach and occasionally a storm would come in causing some monsterous wavage. The way the wedge is positioned on the Balboa Peninsula causes the water to pool up in the corner and slowly wash back into the next wave resulting in a MEGA wave. In 2010 there was a death because someone got thrown into the rocks. Its pretty gnarls barkley and you’ll never catch me in that action. Check out the video from Robbie Crawford. Pretty cool!
