I’ve heard of the Wedge in Newport Beach, Calif. for years - practically all my life having grown up in Southern California. Recently I decided to make a trip, I just missed a good swell but I wanted to check it out anyway.
The one thing I took away from my trip is that regardless of age, the boogie boarders and body surfers take a hit and keep on comin’. It’s definitely a skill, with heavy waves that close out so fast and right on the shore.
I’m looking forward to getting back during a high surf session.
