The waves during the Mavericks Surf Contest were some of the biggest ever, so big that some surfers voted that the competition should be postponed.
While many surfers had spectacular wipe outs thanks to the big Mavericks waves, the most damage was done to some unfortunate fans. At high tide, a series of Mavericks rogue waves crashed ashore, sweeping people into the water.
