Mavericks: steep drops in cold water | Photo: Jacobovs

The Titans of Mavericks will be challenging the iconic big wave surf spot located two miles from shore outside Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, Northern California.

Mavericks may be out of the Big Wave World Tour, but that doesn't mean the peak isn't pumping some of the heaviest and deadliest wave faces on Planet Earth.

The brand has been revamped, and Cartel Management invited 56 titans for the initial battles in the big wave arena.

Therefore, the cold water spot will feature names like Carlos Burle, Grant "Twiggy" Baker, Greg Long, Ian Walsh, Kelly Slater, Ken Collins, and Shane Dorian.

The Titans of Mavericks is a contest/event and festival held each year when the North Pacific Ocean creates the biggest possible swell.

The insignia replaces the Mavericks Invitational and is controlled by Cartel Management.

It is still not clear when the event will take place, and how the Titans of Mavericks will get ASP World Tour surfers competing in Half Moon Bay on a non-Big Wave World Tour stage. Apparently

the contest window officially opens from January 1st through March 31st each year. Details are to be confirmed.
