So im not sure if anyone is familiar with a place called the wedge down in newport beach california, but when the right swell comes in, it gets huge. Today the right swell definitely came in. 18-20 foot waves with an occasional 25 foot wave!! People were crazy enough to body surf them as well. Many people injured and thanks to the excellent lifeguards of newport most people in danger were rescued with an exception of one. These waves actually took someones life today. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
