List of surfers for the Mavericks Invitational 2013/2014 announced

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 July, 2013 : - - Half Moon Bay - On just 24 hours notice this winter season, 24 big-wave surfers will fly to Half Moon Bay, California, to test their skills and vie for the title of champion of the Mavericks Invitational.

From Alex Martins to Zach Wormhoudt, the group of big wave surfers that will challenge Mavericks is outstanding and it was carefully picked by Jeff Clark, Gary Linden, Darryl Virostko, Greg Long and Shawn Dollar.

"We’re all stoked to be back for another year. The 2013-14 season looks promising, with a lot of positive changes made for the competitors and fans. The perfect contest day we’re looking for is typically a northwest groundswell between 18 and 20 feet (translating into waves faces of 30- to 40-feet)", explains Clark.

The contestants receive the famous green light alert and have approximately 24 hours to arrive for the event. Organizers have secured the permit from the San Mateo County Harbor District for this year and through 2016.

The legendary Mavericks surf break is located half mile offshore at Pillar Point Harbor, just 20 minutes south of San Francisco. Peter Mel will be defending the Mavericks Invitational 2012/2013 title.
