Surfing in the Bay Area?
I don't surf, and I don't really watch people surf, but if you're not from around here, you may not have heard about an annual surfing contest called Maverick's. The contest first started in 1999, and is held once a year. When conditions are right to create the huge (up to 50 feet) swells, the word goes out, and participants have about 24 hours to get here and get their game on. If you're a surfing geek and kind of interested in what is so unique about this area that creates such huge waves, read all about it on SFGate. By the way, if you're NOT from here, the waves often suck, so don't make a special trip or anything.
