    Name of the place due to the way the waves come off the jetty rocks.

    As a former lifeguard and strong swimmer, I've bodysurfed The Wedge several times in similar conditions. On one occasion, the surf was bigger than this and I was getting my ass handed to me. So much so, I had to swim farther out to get out past the break just to catch my breath and "rest." I kissed the sand when I finally made it back in. There is nothing like getting pushed into the sea floor and thinking that you're never gonna get back up after somersault after somersault. It's amazing how long you can hold your breath when your life depends on it. Sure was fun though.

    I lived about 5 houses up from the end of E. Ocean street which dead ends into the Wedge. Everytime it was big it was almost guranteed that an ambulance would show up. And when it did get big you never had to look on the surf reports, you could just about hear the waves from inside the house, and obviously the streets were packed with people who do not know how to respect another persons neigborhood. Always leaving trash behind. I loved everything about living there except the crappy ass visitors.

    A bit short of 30', way short. The PI spent 10 years at the Wedge, and survived. Back in 68' a storm came in and according to Surfer Magazine, they hit 22'+. The day before the 22' waves, my friend and I were body surfing 18'+ waves, with Duck Feet fins on. I generally perfered the Wedge over sufing Newport on my 9'6" Jacobs. At about 135 pounds, that longboard was a bit much for me to handle in large surf.

    I still have some shoulder scaring to prove it. My shoulders would have the top few layers of skin burned off by the sand when I hit bottom.
    The danger of the Wedge is the depth of the water at the bottom of the wave, at times just 3'.

    Back in day we did not think about neck or spinal damage, and I do not recall anyone being injured seriously. Basically surfers and O.C locals body surfed the Wedge, no TV cameras, still photos, or many people looking on.

    It was just our spot.

    If you get caught out at the wedge and its too big, just paddle north to Cylinders 3-400' and the surf is X3 times smaller and much less cosnsistant.
    usually when its this big, it acts as a shoulder and is not such a close out, I have never been out when its this big there! smaller is one hell of a good time though!
    Another good spot is thousand steps in south Laguna! similar style of wave but much cleaner style of wedge wave.

    I got 2 shattered knuckles from big surf at the Wedge back in the 70's. If you go over the falls, there's NO water under you........
