Come celebrate Mavericks and the men and women who dare to surf one of the most feared breaks on the planet!

The Mavericks Awards big-wave surfing video contest will present its annual Mavericks Festival, a free celebration for the community, on Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1, 2023 at Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay.
