The wedge is a wave that fascinates all surfers – whether that be bodysurfer, bodyboarder, stand-up or skim. It’s combination of giant sidewinding wedges and close proximity to shore make it an irresistible challenge.

Mason Ho was in town for a brand day with sponsor Rip Curl when a little birdie tweeted that there were some whompers at The Wedge that needed attending to.

Not one to shy away from a novelty session, Mason made a beeline for Newport and got out there. Choosing a bone dry right-hander down the beach, rather than the standard Wedge fare, he set about pulling in over exactly no water.
