‘Best Wave in Surfing Ever?’ Surfer Rides Once-in-a-Lifetime Wave at Mavericks


The waves at Mavericks in Half Moon Bay are known to be some of the best in the world, but this is just ridiculous.

Surfer Peter Mel was lucky enough to find the “wave of the decade” on January 8, riding through the barrel and safely to the other side. After Mel sat back down safely on his surfboard, the group of photographers, emergency officials and other surfers went absolutely bonkers over the accomplishment.

“Was that the best wave in surfing ever?” surmised one onlooker.

The accomplishment of riding the giant waves at Mavericks comes due to its serious danger. After strong winter storms in the Pacific Ocean, Mavericks can see waves anywhere between 25 and 60 feet. It is a very dangerous spot for surfers, known to have taken the lives of famous surfers Mark Foo and Sion Milosky.

The Mavericks Surf Contest, known to attract the best big-wave surfers on the planet, was cancelled indefinitely in 2019 due to a bevy of logistical challenges and tough surf conditions over the past 2 years. That hasn’t stopped some of the best big-wave surfers from enjoying the stoke in the first 2 weeks of 2021.
