Big Waves Hit The Wedge on July 7th

We headed down South to Orange County for a new south swell on July 7th.  The Wedge, located in Orange County, provided an exciting show for the onlookers lining the beach.  Surfers, bodyboarders, skimboarders and body surfers attacked the south swell that arrived in Orange County early July.  While it’s not the biggest swell that has hit the wedge, there were a few decent sized sets that rolled through.

The waves at the Wedge are world renouned and are incredibly dangerous.  The waves literally wedge up from the jetty and form a huge peak, breaking very close to the shore.  It breaks biggest when a Southern Hemisphere storm send their energy from the SSW direction.
