We sometimes miss Newport Wedge during her winter slumber. Those big washy unmakeable kegs and the humorous fate that befalls those fool hardy souls who attempted to ride through them.
Accordingly, we were very pleased to stumble across this clip, featuring the best wipeouts from a years worth of Wedge action, dutifully captured and cut by Man Of Water, the wave’s most dedicated camera wielding voyeur.
The clip features all your favourite genres of Wedge wipeout; there are backwash catapults, big thick lips to the head and neck-breaking swan dives a-plenty. The clip also does not discriminate based on choice of wave craft, featuring body-surfers, skimboarders, boogers, smug soft-toppers and more, so there really is something for lovers of wave riding fails everywhere.
