Surf contest in Half Moon Bay?
I know this is stupid, but I have been searching the internet about a surf contest in Half Moon Bay going on in the next couple of months. I want to go but no one knows what I am talking about there. Maybe I have the dates mixed up. Or maybe it is not in Half Moon Bay, but is along the coast somewhere. If anyone can help me out thanks so much!
they have to wait to determine the best competitive conditions and it's a real touchy spot so it takes careful planning but your timing is pretty good.
here's a little info i dug up for ya.
THE CONTEST RETURNS IN 2007!
It’s on again! Sometime between January 1 and March 31, 2007 - 24 of the world’s greatest big-wave surfers will descend upon the frigid waters of Half Moon Bay for the chance to ride "the most dangerous waves in the world."
The supremely harsh conditions and the thunderous and unpredictable monster waves both contribute to the Mavericks Surf Contest’s allure; not to mention the 24 hour notice, frigid waters, dangerous currents, jagged rocks and the ever-present threat of the Great White Shark. When Mother Nature and a little luck combine to produce the notoriously massive waves, 24 legendary surfers get the call and have a mere 24 hours to pack, travel and be in Half Moon Bay ready to challenge themselves, the waves and each other.
In 2006, epic waves, 40 foot faces, record attendance and 24 warriors marked the return of the third consecutive Mavericks Surf Contest®.
