KGO/ABC7 News, 6:20 pm, 2/9/16, "Titans of Mavericks surf competition to take place Friday in Half Moon Bay."

"HALF MOON BAY, Calif. (KGO) --The world-famous Titans of Mavericks surf competition is on for Friday. The announcement was made early Tuesday to give entrants a chance to fly in from as far away as South Africa. They're predicting 30 foot or higher waves, kicked up by El Nino out at sea.

The surf is tame now, but by Friday a storm out at sea will churn up the water and create waves 30 to 40 feet high. Twenty-four hand-picked competitors will go for the glory of conquering the big waves and a share of a $100,000 prize pot."  Read article.
