Mavericks Roars Back to Life

Mavericks is back! Check out the first video of the action, shot last Wednesday by Powerlines Productions and just posted today on Surfline.com. Look out for the "tombstoning" at 3:10, (this happens when you get held down so far, your leash pulls your board up looking like a tombstone at a cemetary...ouch).

Surfers on the Big Screen: Watch Mavericks at AT&T Park

For those of you fretting about the weekend VDay plans (we've got you covered here, here, here and here), stop immediately. There are more important things to worry about. Like world class sporting events. Yeah, the Olympics are cool and all, but Mavericks was just announced for Saturday. So be a Californian and watch 24 of the world's finest big-wave surfers tear it up for the largest purse in history - $150,000. 

Mind the Waves: Big Swells in Marin This Weekend

Planning on winding your way to Stinson Beach this weekend to take advantage of the warm weather?  Bring your floaties.  They’re predicting huge swells at Marin beaches, the result of a storm coming our way from Japan.  Not the best for casual swimming, but it could make for an extremely exciting Mavericks competition, which kicks off...TBD.  It's still too close to call.

Maverick's Purse Now At $150K - Which Day Will it Be?

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.  And with the announcement that purse is the biggest in big-wave history - at $150K - we're all anxiously awaiting the announcement of when the games will begin.
