Take a 45 minute drive to largest waves on the west coast. One of the most popular surfing spots, Mavericks is known for some of the biggest waves and wildest surfing conditions in Northern California. Every year, Mavericks hosts surfing events that draw hundreds of spectators interested in watching many of the top surfers in the world. Even on a non-event day, watching the surfers tackle the enormous waves can be exciting.
