HALF MOON BAY (CBS SF) – With the window for the contest closing on Wednesday, it is looking like famed Mavericks Challenge big wave surfing contest wont be held this year.

Officials with the World Surf League – which was running the contest for the first time — said the swells this winter were not big enough to hold the annual competition in Half Moon Bay.

There were some favorable conditions in January, but they didn’t last long enough to give international competitors and judges enough time to make the trip to the Bay Area.

Organizers will now shoot for holding the contest next year.
