The Wedge is scary on a small day. And on a big day? Absolutely terrifying. However, that doesn't seem to deter the dozens of boogie boarders and surfers who risk life and limb there on a regular basis. Perhaps the convenience of an in-town wave at Newport Beach is enough to overpower their instincts of self-preservation, or maybe they like the crowds which gather to watch people get mauled.
Because of The Wedge's unconventional shape, it's almost impossible to get a clean ride. But that just makes it all the more impressive when someone does manage to ride away smoothly.
