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.

Hunting Mavericks

“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.

Photo Tip Of The Day

Here is big wave surfer Mark Healey surfing Mavericks. This surfing water photographer is shooting with a wide angle lens, but is clearly not looking through his housing and choosing to just hold it up and fire away.

Our tip to you, always look through your water housing when feasible
