The Wedge in Newport Beach is known as one of the punchiest waves in Southern California. When visiting the notorious break, looky loos sit on the beach expecting nothing less than to see surfers get slammed and swallowed.
If there is one thing that can be said about the wedge, it’s that the wave is predictably unpredictable. The wave keeps you on your toes, second guessing yourself, and hesitant to take off on the steep drops, all parts of the novelty breaks charm. Watch the carnage as the wave rips, rolls, and explodes while surfers try to tackle the beastly shore break.
