Mavericks big wave surf contest is on!

The Mavericks surf contest has been called for tomorrow and I’m lucky enough to have a spot on one of the boat tours.  Check back for some up-close shots of the action tomorrow.

    HI Shawn,
    I first saw my son, Tyler Smith (the Maverick’s surfer in blue) on the Surfline website. The photo of him in the air is my favorite of all the ones I’ve seen so far on the internet and in all the newspapers. The other one that I like is him meditating. If you look on the Santa Cruz Sentinel website for the article that came out on January 12 about Tyler and his brother Russell mentions how he looks out at the ocean and meditates. To see him actually doing it, well, is priceless. You captured the contest in a way I have never seen before. Needless to say, I’m interested in purchasing some of your photos, but I have questions. Is there a way I could talk to you, or should I ask questions on this comment page? Again, love your pictures. I’m one of those on the beach, so didn’t see from your vantage point. Nice job! Marcia Smith
