There's no denying the fun that can be had when getting hurled around in a shorebreak. But the whomp that overhead Wedge provides is reserved for those especially elastic and resilient. And that's whether you're attempting ride it, or equally, attempting to film it.
Take Brent Weldon here, sat firmly in the impact zone capturing Wedge aficionados as they flail above backwash and get pummelled into the dry shore. The only thing we don't see is what happens to dear Brent when the clip cuts and Wedge washes over him.
