The Inertia

When the infamous Wedge in Newport Beach is on, it’s an absolute cluster. Looky-loos armed with cell phones pepper the sand, and it’s not uncommon to see news trucks show up for a piece of the action. The stadium-like atmosphere can cause some in the lineup to do things they might not otherwise do. Like turn on a wave you already see Pipeline specialist Jamie O’Brien scratching into on a foamie.

But, if you don’t have the patience, flick ahead to 3:22 where Jamie paddles into an impressive set wave atop an unsuspecting fellow surfer. The man then tries to pull out and, well, let’s just say things don’t work out.

Only the best. We promise.
