Early morning at the Wedge after a Category 5 hurricane generates the biggest waves in years.
Mob scene in the water.
Set waves were over 15 feet.
Second of four photos of a surfer's wild ride at the Wedge.
Doing an impression of Pipeline.
Two seconds later.
We saw some incredible bodyboard rides.
About 40 bodyboarders and a half-dozen surfers were out.
About as good as it gets at the Wedge.
Big crowd due to non-stop publicity for several days.
It was so crowded by 6:30 am that we had to park at the Balboa Pier and walk a half hour to get to the Wedge.
Newport Point (18th Street on Balboa Peninsula) was also big.
Biggest I've seen at Point (I used to live a block from here).
