Stay tuned for tons of photos of the funnest scenes you've ever seen. We'll be updating throughout the festival, so check back soon! Here's some photos of the party to live vicariously through.
With a monster low-pressure swirl rolling towards the West Coast, it looks like Mavericks could make a run of it either Friday or Saturday. Forecasters are predicting swell in the 8-12 foot range, which isn't quite as big as last year, but still a good size for paddle-in surfers.
