#Convergence...The #Wedge, Newport Beach, CA.


There is this place, a special place, a man-made nexus in Southern California called The Wedge. Locals know. Tourists rarely get there. A point where waves come in two directions, converge with outgoing flows to create large waves very close to shore.

Bodyboards are the safest, but surfer-dudes can't pass up storm-induced sets. People have died here. For a summer, I lived on Balboa, the Wedge was walking distance away. #Turbulance and #Convergence are natural and man-influenced phenomena. At the time, I didn't realize the significance; only today do I recognize the simile:

The dealer channel is in the middle of the maelstrom and has always surfed the Wedge. 55-degree salt water, ear's full of sand, and the possibility of ultimate elimination does not stop you.

You hit the sets every, single morning. Who is there with you? Does your body-board manufacturer tell you how to set up for a wave? Are your board shorts too tight or heaven forbid, too lose?

Do surf-vendors tell surfers how to surf?
