Believe it or not, Mavericks, or at least the waiting period for Mavericks, will start up again in just three short months.
(And guess what, I haven’t seen any self-rightous falderal burbling up from San Mateo County lately – that that can only be a good thing.)

Mavericks Gears Up for the 8th Annual Mavericks Surf Contest®
$150,000 Prize Purse Offered for 2nd Year; Initial Sponsors On Board; Enhancements to Epic Contest to be Unveiled in Coming Months
Half Moon Bay, CA/San Francisco, CA – August 3, 2010 – On the heels of perhaps the greatest big-wave surfing contest in history last February, Mavericks is back and bigger than ever. Preparations are underway for the 8th annual Mavericks Surf Contest® showcasing 24 of the world’s finest big-wave surfers battling for the largest prize purse in big-wave surfing. The 2010/2011 Contest is poised to return to Half Moon Bay, California later this year and will include a number of enhancements to bring Mavericks to an even broader audience, while continuing to honor the spot, the riders, and the local community.
The Contest Is Back. Mavericks Surf Ventures is very proud to make this first announcement laying the groundwork for the 2010/2011 Mavericks Surf Contest®, picking up right where last season left off. The dedicated team has been very busy in the off-season and has just completed a fundraising round that will greatly benefit this year’s event, the riders, the coastside community, and the future of Mavericks and big-wave surfing for years to come. “Our goal is to keep the focus on the soul of the event and respect for the spot, giving the power to the surfers to make ‘the call’ and helping to bring the Mavericks’ ocean phenomenon to a broader global audience,” said Mavericks CEO Keir J. Beadling.
