Welcome to the dirty ol Wedge in Newport Beach, one of the craziest surf sports anywhere. Sadly, many people have been hurt, paralyzed and even killed attempting to ride this wave.
Bruce Brown described the Wedge perfectly in his classic film “The Endless Summer” as a place “where you can catch a wave you didn’t even want”.
The waves here can get well over 20ft and form some amazing barrels. Yes, the Wedge get’s super crowded but if you can find that needle in the haystack you’ll be rewarded with a lifelong memory. – Brad Jacobson
