Mavericks™ Name Origin
Outside of Pillar Point Harbor just north of Half Moon Bay California, after a winter storm the Pacific waves can routinely crest over 25 feet (8 Meters) and top out over 60 feet (18 Meters). This surfing location is known as Mavericks, which is the winter destination of the world’s best big wave surfers.
An invitation only contest is held each year (most winters depending on the weather). Very few riders become big wave surfers and only a few are willing to risk their lives under the hazardous and deadly conditions.
Back in March of 1967, three friends decided to surf the waves at Pillar Point, Alex Matienzo, Jim Thompson, and Dick Knottmeyer. Alex also brought his roommates German Shepherd, Maverick who was accustomed to swimming in the surf while his owner was out on the board.
The three surfers left Maverick on shore, but he swam out to them. Finding the conditions unsafe for the dog, Alex tied him up before rejoining the others. The riders had limited success that day as they surfed overhead peaks about 1/4 mile from shore, just along the rocks that are visible from shore; they deemed the bigger outside waves too dangerous. The surfers named the location after Maverick, who seemed to have gotten the most pleasure from the experience. Courtesy Wikipedia.
As you can see, the name stuck.
Our Logo is dedicated to the big wave surfers, the Mavericks of surfing. These adventurists are willing to risk their lives under the hazardous and deadly conditions at Mavericks.
These men and women are the individualist, nonconformist, and rebels that are willing to experience what life should be and we respect them for that.
If you ever get a chance to go to Half Moon Bay California, it is definitely worth the trip to experience this one and only place.
