the circus that is Mavericks. Notice the helicopter. (1/08)
Conditions this day were perfect with 30 foot plus waves and perfect conditions. Here's to the 2009-2010 season and hopefully, unlike last year (2009), the conditions will come together again.
Mavericks Surf Contest 2008 (1/08). I know it doesnt look too big from my vantage point, but double-click the picture to zoom in and compare to the boats around the wave.
This is the reef break directly to the north of the Mavericks Contest site. Even here were the bythemtry doesnt produce the perfect huge waves that Mavericks does, you can see that this swell was HUGE! These waves were well above 20 feet and just thumpin'! (1/08)
This is a shot taken during a huge swell in November 2008. This isn't my photo and can be found here. This year I hope to get front and center for some reallt great shots of the 2009-2010 Mavericks Surf Contest.
