SurfPulse Coverage of 2009-10 Maverick’s Contest on Saturday, February 13, 2010

Follow the Mav’s contest LIVE by following SurfPulse on Twitter! You will also be able to see the tweets on our website. The SurfPulse Team will be providing live tweeting of the event from two (three, if a miracle) different locations:

Two if by land . . .
Mike will be on land in Half Moon Bay, providing most of the play-by-play of the contest and the awards ceremony. His tweets will start with “HMB”.
Matt will be at AT&T Park, covering the big screen crowd, the beer, and the bratwurst. His tweets will start with “ATT”.

One (big) if by sea . . .
Eric, our photographer, will hopefully finagle his way onto a boat at sea, chronicling the scene up close from the channel (tweeting some color in spare moments and while avoiding the vomit brigade). His tweets will start with “boat”. Either that, or “cliff” ;>)

Despite the legal, business, and personal issues associated with the event, or any middle fingers to surf contests in general, there’s no denying the spectacle and intensity of the event–especially in the conditions expected. Take all the b.s. away and we’re still watching 24 of the best big wave surfers on the planet on arguably the heaviest big wave on the planet with some of the heaviest conditions on day of contest. We wish each of the 24 good luck!

The first heat starts at 8:00 AM. After the first four heats, the semi-finals (2 heats) start at 11:30 AM. The final heat starts at 1:30 PM. Awards ceremony at 3:00 PM.
