Raging Ocean's Power at the Wedge

The ocean always captivates me...with it's calming, serene ability to 'take you away' from all the troubles & worries. But to see the other side, the power, force and danger is mesmerizing! 
A few weeks back we had a HUGE swell. I wasn't able to make it down to the Wedge when it was at it's peak, but the day after still had big crowds lining the beach to watch the daring body surfers attempt to safely ride the waves.

The lifeguards only allowed the Professionals/Locals in the we got to view the best of the best. I needed some shots so I squeezed, pushed, and maneuvered myself right into a front row spot, then pulled my hubby up with me. I'll find a way to get through the mob if it's for a photo!
The wipe out's had me holding my breath until they surfaced!
Just another beautiful day in Orange County, California!
