    Yet another storm off the coast of Mexico, Hurricane Norbert, sent big waves to Southern California this past weekend.

    I took my Vision+ out to "The Wedge" (a very popular surfing, body boarding and bodysurfing hot spot) in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and flew 3 batteries from about 9am to 10am.

    There is a ban on surfboards and bodyboards from 10am to 5pm, so everyone was trying to fighting to get the last good waves.

    I filmed with the camera set to the narrower field of view to get a little closer to the action this time. I hope everyone enjoys it. :D

    Great video, Andy! I'd a lot rather be flying than being in that cold water getting beat up by huge waves.
