The Wedge at Newport in California is one of those waves where you get worked more times than you make it and when it’s on, draws spectators to the shore like a magnet. Crowds gather along the beach to gasp, laugh and wince as riders of all types of surfcraft, get smashed, pitched, drilled and pounded into the Southern Californian sand. Mike Lucas is a filmmaker from Huntington Beach who has put together a must see compilation video of some of the best wipeouts and fails from The Wedge this year.
The Wedge Wipeout and Fail compilation clip is just over 5 minutes long and makes for entertaining viewing as bodysurfers, skimboarders, surfers and bodyboarders get thrashed in equal measures! The video is extremely well edited and the choice of “Baiana” by Barbatuques as the soundtrack adds the perfect primal sound to the occasion.
You can find the brilliant Wedge wipeout and fail compilation video below, make sure you clear your schedule for the next 5 minutes and revel in the unadulterated delights that the Wedge has to offer!
