I haven’t surfed in quite a few years, but it still calls to me at times. Granted, I never got beyond standing and carving left/right, but there is just something amazing about it — whether you’re a newjack or a seasoned pro. Old, young or somewhere in between, it doesn’t matter. Once you catch the fever, you’ve got it for life.
The Mavericks Invitational — one of the biggest and most prestigious surf contests in the world — starts today in Half Moon Bay, California. There was some speculation that it may be cancelled or postponed due to environmental factors, but it was announced on Wednesday that all is a go.
Now watch this awesome footage from last year’s Mavericks Invitational, shot by GoPro.
