Mavericks Surf Contest
Hawaiian surfer Sion Milosky died after an accident at Mavericks Wednesday evening, a San Mateo County deputy coroner said.
The world’s best big wave surfers will likely have to wait another year to compete in a prestigious and perilous wave-riding contest off the Northern California coast.
Nearly two dozen elite surfers gathered in Half Moon Bay on Monday for the opening ceremonies of the annual surf contest at Maverick’s, the event’s co-founder said Tuesday.
The new group selected to organize the Mavericks Surf Contest has promised to limit public access to the shore to prevent the spectator injuries that marred last year’s competition.
