Once-in-a-Lifetime Waves Slam the Northern California Coast

After the National Weather Service issued a high surf warning in Northern California on Sunday, organizers of the world-renown Mavericks Surf Challenge postponed the event past this week. But that didn’t stop surfers from experiencing one of the best surf days in the past decade on Monday.

Waves the size of 5-story buildings slammed the coast of NorCal on Monday, creating a dangerous situation for beach-goers and waves of a lifetime for big wave surfers. Riders, along with a slew of photographers and media, crowded the cliffs above Mavericks near Half Moon Bay to see an aquatic show of epic proportions.

KPIX even flew a helicopter over the scene:

And some of the best big-wave surfers from around the world got to see their peers ride the massive swells. Here are some of the best videos/photos of the once-in-a-lifetime event at Mavericks:
