Mavericks Surf Contest Canceled – Waves Don't Care

Female big-wave surfers have been fighting to compete in the Mavericks surf contest for years.

But the World Surf League has canceled it.

The big-wave surf break off Pillar Point near Half Moon Bay is a notoriously fickle spot to hold a contest, WSL is only the latest organization to cut its losses and pull out of the contest.

Fortunately, the waves — and quite a few surfers — won't disappear once the prize money and Jumbotron disappear.
