Death at the Wedge - 7/24/09

I just read a story online at the OC Register that a bodysurfer (possibly a bodyboarder) was killed at the Wedge today.

According to the story he was thrown onto the jetty rocks and was badly injured. The Newport Beach Lifeguards were able to rescue him but he passed away later at Hoag Hospital.

Here is the link to the OC Register Article

Guys please be careful out there...I am just as stoked as the rest of you on getting some solid sized waves...but they are not worth getting hurt (or worse).

Forecast will be up in about an hour or so...
