The Wedge from the skies

So-Cal’s notorious shore break has finally been captured from the sky through the airborne lens of Eric Peniata. The video of course features the standard applaudable yet possibly misguided attempts at wave riding that we have become used to seeing at the Wedge, and yes there are plenty of “ohhh shit son” moments to be enjoyed. While the footage isn’t as confronting as some of the shore shots we usually see from this break, the drone shot clip really emphasises the ridiculous power of these waves.

The clip is made in memory of Newport Beach lifeguard Ben Carlson who tragically passed away while making a rescue on July 6 during 10-12 foot surf.
