The Mavericks Invitational is arguably the most prestigious surf competition in the world. Now, “the greatest surf show on Earth” is under new management to take it to new heights. Find out how Cartel Management intends to improve the event, on this week’s Off the Lip Radio Show. Cartel Management President, Griffen Guess, will join Mavericks pioneer, Jeff Clark, to discuss the future of Mavericks Invitational.
A battle of the elements, the raw power of Mavericks goes unmatched. Endless challenges of the cold water surf break pose real consequences to even the strongest and most prepared athlete. Northern California’s gem has taken the lives of legendary big wave surfers like Mark Foo in 1994 and Sion Milosky in 2011 – dearly missed, and never forgotten. Their legacy lives on, as the next generation faces the challenging big wave break in front of a global audience across all platforms of media communication.
Mavs pioneer, Jeff Clark, surfed the wave by himself for 17 years, and will join the President of Cartel Management on Tuesday night to discuss the upcoming Mavericks Invitational event.
