The swells keep getting bigger and bigger at The Wedge, and this was the biggest one so far this year.
It wasn’t huge, but a solid 10 feet probably. Next week looks even bigger…
When I showed up with my Phantom 3 drone, there was already another guy flying his DJI Inspire. We had a good drone chat, and we made sure to fly at different heights so our drones wouldn’t collide.
I was a little nervous about flying too low, because the salt water would spray up super high when the waves would break. I got a couple close shots though, and the drone came away unharmed.
Towards the end of my battery life, I noticed a couple other drones flying in the area, but I couldn’t see who was flying them. Since I couldn’t coordinate positions with the other pilots, I just decided to pull out and pack it up. Blackball had just happened anyways, and anyone with a board was forced to leave the water.
It was a really fun morning at The Wedge with plenty of carnage!
