Starting September 1, 2011, a huge south swell made its way to the Wedge in Newport Beach to entertain spectators and surfers with 20-foot-plus waves. Hundreds of locals gathered early to watch surfers, bodyboarders, and other daredevils brave the triple overhead conditions in one of the biggest swells so far this year.
