Wedge Surf Guide

Wedge in Maryland is a beach and reef break that has unreliable waves with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds blow from the west northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east southeast. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of urchins, rips and sharks.
