Monday Photos: Maverick’s

The ocean has been in some mood lately. Thanks El Niño. And when the ocean is cranky, the world’s best XXL spots come alive. This month alone saw a proper day at Jaws. It gave us the Punta Galea challenge. And over the weekend, it woke Maverick’s up. A big ol’ swell rocked the California coast and it brought a slew of the world’s best big wave surfers along with it. Saturday at Mav’s featured a boat getting caught inside, a handful Billabong XXL Award Wave of the Year nominations and all things between. Thanks a ton, ocean.
