The Wedge Fires On A Big South Swell

The Newport Beach Wedge. On a big south swell it’s the biggest summertime time attraction in all of SoCal. Every time it breaks, packs of onlookers watch maniacs charge a nearly unrideable wave mere yards from the beach. This morning (Friday, June 7) was opening day and The Wedge provided it all; crazy wipeouts, massive tubes, and a handful of successful rides.
