One of the most feared waves on the planet
Mavericks is that rarest of things: not just a perfect wave and not just a giant wave but a perfect, giant wave.
The peak lies a little less than a half mile off of Pillar Point and is marked by a clump of Stonehenge like boulders lining the inside. Massive swells looming out of the deep approach a shelf made up of black, ungodly reef and boulders 20-feet beneath the surface at breakneck speeds. From there, Mavericks becomes a 20-foot version of Stockton Avenue: a perfect, jacking AAA-frame breaking both ways, the right going long and the left a short-lived explosion of hell and spitfire.
The best Mavericks waves of the season will be judged by a panel of world-class big wave surfers. “There is no bigger honor in surfing than being judged by your peers. I am excited to be a judge on a panel with such accomplished big wave surfers and I am looking forward to celebrating the winners.” - Jeff Clark
These are the talented men and women who braved Mavericks last season and were selected as the best for 2023.
