Matt Warshaw explores the secrets behind the legendary big wave surf break of Mavericks, located in Half Moon Bay, Northern California.

Mavericks is a punishing wave. On December 23, 1994, the spot claimed the life of Hawaiian legend Mark Foo. But to understand why this happened, Warshaw takes the reader back to the origin of big wave surfing.
