There are few events in the surfing world as exciting as the annual Mavericks Challenge California Surf Contest. This one-day, invitation-only surfing competition is held at the legendary Mavericks surf break just minutes away from Half Moon Bay Brewing Co., 20 minutes south of San Francisco. What makes the Mavericks Challenge so special? Winter storms in the Pacific Ocean can sometimes drive waves that rise as high as 60 feet. These conditions draw the best surfers from around the world to test their skills on some the biggest and most dangerous waves to be found anywhere on earth.
There are many reasons to visit the Half Moon Bay coast any time of year, but our Coastside is especially inviting during the Holidays.
