Curious as to what wave is considered one of ‘the most dangerous waves’ in the world?
If you guessed Mavericks, the notorious break at Half Moon Bay, Northern California, then you are correct. Mavericks is one of the heaviest waves in the world and attracts some of the most dedicated big-wave surfers to her unforgiving swells each year. This wave can quench any big-wave surfers thirst for adrenaline, seeing up to 50-foot faces during the winter months.
