The Wedge, when a big south comes pushing through, provides thrill seekers more than they'll ever want. A classic wave at a classic surf spot.

fishurmo This is gorgeous. I love coming to watch the surf at the Wedge. Thank you for the post.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
