A sunny day at The Wedge, Newport Beach. When the swell is just right it reflects off the jetty and doubles up with the wave behind it. This super wave rears up and slams bodyboarders into only a few feet of water at the water’s edge. It’s fun to watch (from the shoreline). This image was taken from an R22 helicopter while on a separate job.
This is a video of The Wedge in action. Turn your volume down…the music is raucous.
