“Really big and lumpy!” – the text message we received on this morning from Josh Loya (former pro surfer now boat owner/driver out at Mavericks)

“I always enjoyed shooting Flea. He had a weird style and had that reckless way about his surfing in which you never knew what you we’re going to get” – Jack English
Darryl Virostko – Mavericks, Half Moon Bay
Surfing photos of Darryl Flea Virostko have been uploaded to his page
Ryan Divel (then Rusty surfing team manager) was called the day before the swell hit and was asked by Flea that he needed a tow partner. Ryan showed up super sick then sucked the tow rope into the ski – Flea’s day was over.
“to be honest I don’t even like to talk about it” – Nathan Fletcher (knowing Nathan this is a response he would had given when asked about Sion not Mav’s – from the way Fox edited this piece it made it seem as if Nathan didn’t like talking about Mavericks – we could be wrong, but we think we’re right)
It’s one of the greatest challenges in big wave surfing. Mavericks is as supreme in the sport as it perilous. Take a look at what it takes to surf and survive the feared and revered big wave location.
We have just finished uploading some images that we’re taken at the big wave surfing spot Mavericks. To check them out visit the California page.

Congratulations to Peter Mel this years Mavericks Invitational Big Wave Champion
Good things come to those who wait wasn’t the case for this years Mavericks Contest as they jumped the gun on this one.
We got word from many photographers for major surfing magazines around the world that they we’re left hanging dry and could not find any placement on a media boat of any kind. But wait, for $1,000.00 a spectator can be on the Mavericks Invitational boat (your choice of morning or afternoon) meaning not for the whole day. So instead of trying to supply access for the surfing media with front row seats to document the event you chose to sell $1,000.00 seats instead as if you weren’t already making enough money as is. We are understanding more and more why no surf brands have jumped on board with this event. As one of the surfers in the contest stated, “I have to be involved to be sure the contest director keeps his hand out of the cookie jar.”
