The Wedge, located at the end of the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, California, is a world famous, man-made beast of a wave. Since its creation, people have flocked from all over to see it in its mythical form. Wedge waves can be as powerful as any on Earth. It is a place where injuries are common and where even deaths have occurred. Dirty Old Wedge is a documentary film that will showcase the history of the Wedge starting from its creation in the 1930s. A unique assemblage of body surfers which has come to be known as the “Wedge Crew” will be one of the focal points of this film, highlighting their relationships with the wave and with one another.
