Last Wednesday Hurricane Marie served up a massive swell here in SoCal. Everyone and their mother (myself included) flocked to Newport Beach to witness the monster waves at the Wedge. Surfline's 6:30am report called it 20-25 ft. and EPIC!! By the time I got there it was more like 10-15 ft., but even so, it didn't disappoint. Hundreds of spectators lined the beach, along with news crews and choppers circling above. Unfortunately, I didn't get the "money shot" I was hoping for (kicking myself for not renting a bigger lens!), but it was still worth the trip. Looks like this guy was after it too.
