Today the Mavericks Surf contest official waiting period begins. At any point between today, December 7th 2007, and March 31st 2008 the contest can be called. Once the contest is called invited surfers and surfing fans have 24 hours to travel from where ever they are worldwide to the event.
This past Tuesday waves reached nearly 70 feet at Mavericks. With great surf so early in the season lets hope the contest happens this year. Last years event never happened as the right combination of conditions failed to come together to produce the needed giant surf. As always I’ll be monitoring storm and swell forecasts in the hope that I can catch the action.
