Northern California surfers ride the mavericks
CNN — Surfers in Northern, California rode breathtaking waves in the famed Mavericks Invitational Surf Contest at Half Moon Bay which is just south of San Francisco.
Some of the waves were at least 20 feet high. Surfers travel from throughout the world to participate in this competition and get a chance to catch to some of the biggest waves surfed in a competition.
This is the first year the "Mavericks" is a destination on the Big Wave World Tour which takes competitors through international waves in Chile, Peru and Mexico.
