 Additional Information

Nobody surfs this spot accept for the old timers who have been around, not many visitors to say the least.

In Ocean City, on 1st street, where the inlet is, you will see a channel. Across that channel is another jetty that seperates ocean city from the Assateague wildlife beaches. The Wedge is that jetty. To get there, you will need to get onto to Route 50 going West, go over the OC bridge, and a minute later you should see a habor, and signs that say shantytown. Well explore the area and side streets and find a safe place to paddle out (hint: look for a private beach with a diving board). Current can be strong, so be careful. Its a 2minute paddle on a good day. Watch for Coast Guard (who will fine you)all kinds of fast moving Boats. When you reach the other side, you have to walk along the channel, going east, after a 1/4 you will find the jetty.

Atmosphere

The Wedge is a good spot to escape crowds and just to go exploring. It can get crowded on certain days, and the peak is small so there are times when it can be difficult to get waves. Prepare for an all day trip, don't be too worried about the paddle, its not as hard as it looks. If you have a boat, go for it. Also if its a NE wind swell, this jetty can provide good protection from the winds. Lots of wildlife around too, so don't be surprised to find a dear or ponies around you.

General

The Wave itself when small is a longboard style left,that is fun and doesn't close out. It breaks farther out than most of the other breaks. When its bigger surf, it can be verry hollow, and offer up a section (hence the name). Also about 200 yards down from the jetty breaks good left and right, and when the jetty is small, this could be on so make sure to check it.

It gets good, so get here! - That 'true local' is really just a true whiner. It's worth the hassle it takes to get these waves when it works, so don't worry about them whiney locals that can't have their cake & eat it too; like they used to in them good 'ol days...

By true local , 25-07-2005

go home - this wave blows. it is probable the worst in the area, it does not accept swell very well, and any a-hole with a crapy pontune boat can get there. plus the only people who surf it are little faggy kooks that think there such hard a$$e$. the overview of this wave is completely wrong
