After seeing Aliso Creek do its thing on the morning of July 5th, I raced home, grabbed a couple of things and drove over to the Wedge on Balboa Peninsula to check the waves. I knew I would be fighting traffic like crazy to get down there and parking would be next to impossible but I had to check it out… I had my three kids with me (wife at home), and with the littlest one at 20 months old on my back, I had my hands full… I’ve been down there a bunch of times when I heard there was a swell in or big surf was up and every time I’ve been over the past few years, I’ve just been witness to peaceful choppy little bits of not much… this past Monday was totally different and was the surf I had been craving to see for a long time.
I’m going to break the pics up into a couple of posts; be sure to click the super-wide shots for the full effect. Enjoy:
I’ll post another round of pix later on.
