Awesome Video Shows What It’s Like to Surf at Mavericks – It’s POV Cam!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

The people at the Mavericks Surf Contest are still mulling over when and if they’ll be able to put on a show this season, but no matter, check out this recent video of veteran Bart Willems taking on San Mateo County’s best surf on a 15-foot day.

Tink happy toughts, and the 2009-2010 season will go off without a hitch.
