Mavericks big-wave surf contest may not happen this year
The window for the competition will close March 31, and organizer Jeff Clark said the wind and ocean conditions may not be right to hold the contest.
"Although we are hopeful, it does not look like the swell we need for the contest will show before the window closes," Clark said in a statement to the newspaper.
