Mavericks 2014


Mavericks surf contest


In Half Moon Bay, California, 24 big-wave surfers competed in the legendary Mavericks Invitational, where gigantic swells belittled boats and spectators. The conditions, during the event on last Friday, generated waves reaching 50 feet in height — manageable size for the participating elite wave riders. South African Grant “Twiggy” Baker took first place in the competition.
