I traveled down to Southern California on business this week. I flew in and out of John Wayne Airport - always a fun ride. They gun the engines to steeply climb to 1000 feet very quickly and then they cut the engines to adhere to FAA rules to lessen noise over the OC.
The flight path brought us right over the Wedge. I quickly grabbed my phone turned it on and snapped this quick pic. Did not look like much was breaking at the time but you can see from the pic that the Jetty is set up to welcome what ever south pulse comes through with open arms. Cool vantage point.
A beast of a wave when it is on.
