{ Newport Beach: The Wedge }

This one's for all my poor friends stuck in Utah this summer. You probably already heard, but the Wedge was going OFF this weekend. Check out this video compilation from Saturday afternoon in Newport:

So sick!! I was noticing everyone's Facebook status had something to do with the waves, and now I know what all the fuss was about, holy cow!! So sad I missed it...looking at it from the safe, soft sandy beach that is ;)

I can't believe that! Is this the same beach where a 40 something year old man was killed? He was bodysurfing and was slammed into some rocks. I thought it was at the Wedge. Those are some crazy waves!

Our RS beach day on Friday was crazy too (so I heard)! The lifeguards wouldn't let anyone go in the water at all. I'm kinda both sorry and glad I missed it at the same time...would have loved to see those waves, but would have NOT loved to argue with my kids about why they can't put their toes in the water! lol

YES Marcy! It's the same beach where that man died last week. After watching this video I think we all know why. So crazy!!!

Those are insane waves! Too dangerous for my blood. And, to think my son, Mark, used to do that crazy stuff -- and ended up with 28 stitches on the top of his head when the "fin?" (skag?) came down and sliced his head open. No, thank you, very much! I'll stay on the sand with Jacki!
