Mavericks is Here!

Its on!  The 2013 premier big wave surf competition, The Mavericks Invitational, is taking place this Sunday, January 20th at Pillar Point, Half Moon Bay, CA.  If you want to witness men riding mountains then this is the place to be! To get the full surf experience, stay in Santa Cruz this weekend and take advantage of the Mavericks Invitational overnight deals offered by area hotels.  You can tour the area’s best surf spots, check out the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum, or take a surfing lesson yourself with Richard Schmidt Surf School or Club Ed! Eight of the 24 competitors entered in the contest are from Santa Cruz including Ken “Skindog” Colins and Peter Mel.  View all the surfers here and choose who you’ll be routing for! Mavericks recently received a big boost in popularity with the October 2012 release of the major motion picture, Chasing Mavericks.  The film, starring Gerard Butler, told the true story of local Santa Cruz surfer, Jay Moriarity and his quest to ride the big waves of Mavericks, and it was filmed in Santa Cruz!  Visitors to the area can download a location map and discover all the spots around town where filming took place! On top of catching some awesome performances on the waves, visitors will also be able to enjoy some great weather!  The forecast for this weekend in Santa Cruz calls for temperatures in the 70s so bring your sunglasses! “The waves are going to be insane, the weather is going to be beautiful, and the level of surfing will break new ground,” said Mavericks Invitational Contest Director Jeff Clark. Spectators will not be allowed in the bluffs or on the beach, so in order to get the full experience of the contest, contest officials have organized the Mavericks Invitational Festival.  The festival is an outdoor event that will run all day with a live steam of all the contest action.  Festival goers will enjoy a day of music, live commentary, food, the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden, Grind Out Hunger Skate Park, Mavericks Gallery of Photography, and an opportunity to mingle with competitors. As soon as the final heat is complete, all the action on the water will move to the Festival, where the surfers will gather for the Awards Ceremony. The event wraps up at sunset. Head to Santa Cruz this weekend for a fun, surf-filled getaway that you won’t forget!

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations?
    Cheers!

    When the wind really howls,the tunnel-shaped hood can be pulled tightly around the face,using an adjustable bracing wire,creating a sheltering pocket of
    air to keep the face warm. It should be so eye catching that people themselves are attracted towards
    it. re wearing a traditional, floor-length white dress, perhaps you.
