The weekend of the Hurley US Open of Surfing finals, a west swell brought double over head sets. This almost never happens. Because of the swell, the projected attendance at the US Open was 500,000! HB is a parking nightmare, so we decided to head south to the Wedge in Newport Beach to avoid the crowd. Because the Wedge is essentially a shore break, I decided to leave the still cameras at home and shot video. The early weather was pretty socked in, but the waves did not disappoint.
fyi, if you look closely, some of the surf footage features surf legend Tom Curran. Turn it up!
