World famous big wave! HEAVY DUTY BIG WAVE SPOT WITH COLD WATER AND PLENTY OF SHARK. EXPERIENCED BIG WAVE RIDERS ONLY. Sometimes the left has been surfed. The take-off is hollow, in front of big boulders (Boneyard area). After, you surf a long big wall and finish in a deep channel (still alive?). Tow-ins become very popular.

- I am thinking of opening a surf school at mavericks. It would be a "No experience necessary type surf camp". I was just wondering what you locals would like to say about that and if its a good idea. Thanks please give me your input
