  THE WEDGE - NEWPORT BEACH

 

The Wedge in Newport Beach CA is an incredible surf

spot resulting from the construction of a

jetty protecting the Newport Inner Harbor.

 

A strong SW swell produces 12 to 20 foot waves a

couple times per year.  Photographing the surfers

provides the opportunity to shoot the largest

waves coming straight in, waves bouncing off the jetty,

and glassy waves arriving from the west.
