Mavericks all set for Friday
January 23, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

Twenty-four of the world's best big wave surfers have until Friday to get to the Mavericks contest.

With a Pacific storm pushing big waves toward California, organizers of a contest at one of the world’s most perilous surfing spots have told competitors to grab their boards and get ready.

Jeff Clark, director of the Mavericks event, set the contest for Friday after forecasters predicted that the mix of swell size and weather would make for waves with faces exceeding 40 feet.

Twenty-four of the world’s best big wave surfers now have until then to make their way to the break a half-mile off the coast near Half Moon Bay.

Two seasoned watermen have died there, including legendary big-wave rider Mark Foo from Hawaii in 1994.

This year’s competitors feature local and international surfers, including former Mavericks champion Greg Long.

What do you think of the pending closure of Tpumps in downtown San Mateo?

Surprised, it was super popular
Makes sense, the shop was too small
Hope they find their way back to San Mateo soon
There are plenty of other boba tea places
Glad, boba drinks make the sidewalks a sticky mess
