The Wedge reviews
It’s a very short walk out from parking/street to enjoy the beach weather and take it all in ! You can watch the boats all entering & exciting Newport From there too ! more »
Crazy gnarly wave sets, and some fearless souls can keep you entertained all day. Its like watching humans in a washing machine. more »
Limited parking, known for daredevils during high surf conditions. Otherwise it's a nice place to walk on the beach.
Great surf theater! Worth a visit. Parking difficult.
