Wedge II: This Time It’s Personal

by on Wednesday 12th June, 2013   59922 Visits   Comments

WEDGE take two! If Trestles is a wave designed by committee, a uniform setup with something for everyone and unlikely to inflict much pain, then Newport’s Wedge came out of the horrific marriage of Anton Chigurh and Hannibal Lecter.

This is surfing’s equivalent of a slasher movie, you know everyone is going to meet a horrific fate and it is just a question of how. The motivation behind the riders intention is clear, have fun, try not to die. The audience is unquestioningly voyeuristic. And the source of the edit was of course that monster south swell which hit Teahupoo. Get the popcorn out.
