Here are ten photos of The Wedge in Newport Beach California. Every once in a while when the conditions are just right, the Wedge will have huge waves. The brave and skilled surfers and Boogie Boarders go out in these very dangerous waves.
These all look best in download mode.

Excellent photos! Love the expressions that can be seen. When adrenaline drives, potent stuff.

Absolutely great set Brent. As you said to quixdraw "The adrenaline is a key factor at the Wedge." I would think that a large dose of masochism coupled with a little touch of insanity would be helpful also

IMO, no masochism, just one heck of a rush! Hoowah!

Young people always think they are incapable of getting hurt. The older people have gained wisdom and know that getting hurt is a possibility. I didn't see any old people out in the water that day!

Yes, it's about the rush and living to tell about it. Look at the photos and think about the TONS OF WATER that are all around the people, knowing the waves break on very shallow water.

To even see the Wedge on a south swell is to learn fear

While on the beach photographing, I overheard two young body surfers who had just come in from the waves and talking about how scared one of them was.......and the other one complimented him on how he had looked at that fear and took on the challenge.
