Surf Report for Maverick's Big Wave Contest

Forecast Outlook:
FRIDAY: Large WNW swell builds to it's peak with 3x overhead (15-18' faces) wave heights at most well exposed spots along with larger sets. Deepwater focal points are running 25'+ (faces) on the best sets during the more favorable tides. Many spots are overloaded/washed out with too much swell.

WEATHER/WIND: Calm to light NW winds early with NW flow trending up through the morning, then moderate NW flow in the afternoon. Patchy fog possible in the morning, otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds for the day.

Trivia time: Where did the name Maverick's originate?   The name of Jeff Clark's dog.  Clark started surfing at Mav's back in 1974.  No one would join him at the break for another 15 years.
