ok listen up everyone. Mavericks is the heaviest wave in california and in most parts of the world. there have been injuries and fatalities there and if you are not an experienced big wave rider i would not recommend going out. However it is your decision. When and if you go out i would climb the hill and take a peek at the waves and the lineup....theres gauranteed to be people out there if its goin off and im sure not allof them will be using skis. show the peole out there respect. Another thing is wait your turn, even if noone is on the wave that just passed you by wait anyways becuase it is not your spot and is incredibly dangerous. Remember Respect,fun,and good rides. Good luck dude...youll need it

Utter insanity.
But it's a nice drive.
I bought a Mavericks t-shirt and that is about as close as I'm gonna get.

As a good friend always tells me " WERE ALL LEGENDS IN OUR MIND "  Good luck and charge hard. Watch and learn and study is my moto You can have that ### ing wave I have no Ballls for that spot. I really respect all those chargers from up north. If you need help navigating a channel it sounds like you dont need to be their. Sorry not to be an ass but your asking a lame ?  Please wear a vest!

Safety first.  If you can't navigate to the channel near where the waves are breaking, you shouldn't be out at Mavericks man.  Definately learn to tow-in somewhere else.  For everyone's sake.  Take a water safety class.
