No thanks! I remember boogy boarding as a kid a few times. Even getting caught up in Santa Cruz's tiny 2-3 foot waves was a frightening experience.

I lived 5 minutes from Maverick's for a bunch of years.

Did OK at Cruz and Surfer's Beach, never had the balls/skill to attempt Maverick's, but mind blowing to watch those who did.

Disqualified for record. There's clearly two surfboards there, one carrying his testies...

Big wave surfers (even tow in) are gods...

The physical and mental preps for it are extreme. They may be a tad whacky, but nobody's asking them to do your taxes. They have my respect.

No, she was a player out there, but broke her ankle and nearly drowned.
