Dozens of spectators are turning out to watch the power and majesty of the Pacific Ocean and the few brave souls who dare to ride in it.
Massive waves are slamming the Wedge in Newport Beach again today as a south swell his in the Southland. The high surf is expected to continue through this evening, with Orange County scoring the biggest waves. And, as the Surfboard Man says, major wipeouts are inevitable.

Waves of up to 9 feet are forecast in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
