Giant, Angry, Moving Mountains

Maverick's, (previously: 1, 2, 3) the legendary birthplace of big-wave surfing, saw one of its biggest, scariest days ever one week ago today. While I sat at a desk, the pros and the stone crazy were cheating death, not once, but twice on fog-shrouded, moving mountains. All in a day's work.

Mavericks: The Wave Beyond
The conditions were right and, about 30 hours ago, they announced this year's Mavericks Surf Contest was ON, the waves get as big as 50 feet and are considered "one of the most challenging waves in the world"! This isn't Hawaii, this is just off the coast of Half Moon Bay, California!
