Big Surf

We are in Newport Beach right smack in the middle of a Big Surf day. Here at the Wedge a thousand people have gathered to gape at the awesome surfers. If I could, I would include audio of the waves crashing and the crowd gasping.




Svein builds up a mound of sand to get above the masses and snap this perfectly-timed shot.

The lifeguards have to give up trying to get on-lookers to stay back on top of the cliff and away from the water's edge.


How huge are these waves?! Reports were 20 -25 feet.


Further up the beach, the Balboa Pier is pounded.


Girls ....standing on the edge of the world.
