Surf's Really Up North Shore Comes To The Wedge

No one likes to be cramped like two legged sardines on a Hawaiian flight
But if a surfer and you want the waves that thrill you have to endure be prepared to complain and gripe
5 plus hours of no food, screaming kids from hell
All in the quest to find the perfect North Shore swell
Saying a prayer to the surfing gods before you board the plane
That your checked board lands with you to face the North Shore wave train
Thanks to mother nature and a place known as the Wedge in Newport Beach
Waves this week end of twenty five feet are within our surfers’ reach
No need to board another lousy service plane
No need to endure the airline gouging pain
Time to a sun burn and cheap lei forgo
Off to the Wedge to enjoy the surf’s coming show
Just another reason why this little piece of sand dotted with  harbor yachts
Is a place to live, always the neighborhoods so wisely sought
