The Wedge August 27, 2014

Thousands of spectators lined the beach as surfers and bodyboarders attempted to ride the 15 to 20-foot waves at California’s “The Wedge”. Some say there were occasional waves near 30 feet!


Surfline.com said the waves were “Good to Epic” in size, and generated by Hurricane Marie, off the coast of California.

A spokeswoman for the city of Newport Beach California, said the waves had attracted about 3,000 to 4,000 spectators at The Wedge.

The Wedge is one of the more difficult breaks on the West Coast, known its power and shape.The wave action at The Wedge bcan be highly unpredictable and therefore both exciting as well as very dangerous.
