A "Little" Day at Wedge

by Strider Snead

One day, one of my friends at school asked me if I was going down to Wedge after school, and I said, “I don’t know, why?” And he told me Clark Little was going to be there. Then more and more of my friends started talking about it and that’s when I really wanted to go down there.

Right after school my friends and I rode our bikes down to Wedge. Clark wasn't there yet so we just hung out and waited. Then right at five he got there and everyone huddled up next to him in a little crowd and started asking questions, like what were some of his worst injuries and stuff like that. He told us about how he once dislocated his shoulder, and then some other pretty crazy stuff like the time he was held under by a ten wave set and almost died. After the q&a session we all started heading out to the water and everyone was getting pictures of him.

Some of the advice he gave us for taking photos was to lay on your stomach and take pictures and only face sidewaysnot toward beachand to go under the wave really deep so you don’t get slammed. It was good advice for taking shots in the shorebreak at Wedge. Clark’s really cool and nice, and I’m glad I met him. It was an epic day.
