Bummer this summer for surfers eyeing the Wedge

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 February, 2014 - Following two hours of emotional public comment about who should be allowed to surf where and when, commissioners decided to leave current surfing rules in Newport Beach just as they are, including those that govern the Wedge.

Potential changes ranged from the shortening of exclusive swim time between 40th and 44th streets to the establishment of a small skimboard zone near Balboa pier. But the Wedge bore the brunt of the passionate remarks.

The vote was unanimous.
