The annual big wave contest at Mavericks (near Half Moon Bay, CA) is still coming. This year, Ask.com has built a site with good driving directions and info about the event.
Directions and Parking Suggestions
A good read -- two safety jet ski riders who may have skied up a 100 foot wave on Nov. 21, 2001
Three very cool photos from past years!
Mavericks Web Cam and a bunch of other technical info -- Interesting even if you are not a surfer!
If you go this year, please post a field report!
