What can I say? The wedge pumped on the same date as last year and showed its evil ways to Jamie O'Brien.
The surf in The Wedge is measured by increments of fun, broken bones and amount of sand in the ass.
Get your boogie and your balls and destroy your spine. That's the spirit. Enjoy it.
The Wedge Newport Beach Ca. - Best swell of summer 2012 (so far). Check out the pix at: http://www.johnminarphotography.smugmug.com - SURFING &BODYBOARDING
In Episode III of HAPPY BEACH . . . The Wedge. Spencer Pirdy steps up and charges the huge south swells of California, proving that, "If at first you dont succeed, try and try again." Albee Layer stops by and takes over with late drops and smooth backhand piggies, making it look easy, but does have to pay the price with donuts. Josh Hoyer makes an appearance dodging flying boogie boarders, choosing not to grab rail, and breaking his Wedge board on a rough one. During all of the Newport chaos, Bobby Okvist gets the wave of the summer.
