THE HUB | February 16th 2010 | Biggest Mav’s EVER Edition (we never get tired of claiming it, do we?)

Check out 94 photos from SF Chronicle here

That’s right…94. And, like, half of them are wipeouts. God bless America.

New York Times says…

“Two onlookers were taken to the hospital. And, my pride may not recover for a long time.”

New Yorkers just get it.

Love a good mass wipeout on land.

…hey maybe the Rebel Tour should surf only Rogue Waves. Whatever happened to that thing anyway?

If you’re gonna says Ken Collins…why not say Ken “Skindog” Collins?
If you’re gonna say Daryl Virotsko…why not say Daryl “Flea” Virotsko?
If you’re gonna say Grant Baker…why not say Grant “Twiggy” Baker?

Next year, all big wave surfers will be required to have a nickname.
Life is more fun with apostrophes.

And then there’s this…which isn’t Mav’s, it’s just some chick’s butt.
