Watch: Big Waves Hit The Wedge in Southern California

A big south swell rolled into the iconic surf spot this weekend
Related: Adventure


When big waves hit The Wedge in Newport Beach, Calif., as they did this weekend, crowds gather to watch. Ambulances sometimes hover nearby, too. That's because waves reflect off a jetty near the surf break and magnify, creating towering peaks that break in shallow water. It's treacherous.

Bodysurfers, bodyboarders and sometimes even surfers drop in -- occasionally at the same time. Exhibit A: this video, shot Saturday, Sept. 1.
