Description:

The behemoth of all California surf spots, Mavericks provides massive surf under the right conditions. Waves here are often over 25 feet in size and in the perfect storm can top over 80 feet. This is the result of a strange underwater rock formation resulting in a gigantic upheaval of water. Mavericks has claimed a few lives in its time, but the danger of death has proven to be a relatively small hurdle for the surfers seeking the ultimate thrill of the big waves.
