The Wedge is the big ado of Newport Beach waters. It is an extreme, slamming wave off the eastern end of Balboa Peninsula. It's so legendary that famed surf rock guru Dick Dale sung its praises and was featured in the surf lovin' film, The Endless Summer. The huge,deadly swell has reached as high as 30 ft. Bettr to watch from afar this wondurous thing of nature.
