Mavericks Surf Contest took place today (Saturday, Feburary 13, 2010) starting at 7:50am in Half Moon Bay, CA. Over 20,000 spectators gathered on the beach and hillsides trying to
get a view of the competition. And almost 50,000 people watched the
contest live on Ustream.

Giant waves reached 50 feet (that’s five stories high) —some of the
biggest ever for a Mavericks Surf Contest! They were dangerous too. A
combination of huge rogue waves and high tide swept several hundred
spectators off their feet and injured at least 15 — the most serious
injuries involved broken bones.
