The Wedge in Newport Beach is Pumping!

At the very end of the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach is a spot known for a crazy break with waves that reach 15 feet in height when the weather is just right. The craziest thing about The Wedge is the fact that the waves rise and break pretty much right on the beach. There’s no wading out into waist deep water to cool off when The Wedge is going off. You’ll get destroyed. Which is what the girl in this video looks like she was trying to do and ended up needing to be rescued by the lifeguard boat.
