RIP Mavericks Contest

Rant - RIP Mavericks Contest

As the new and maybe last solid swell of the 09-10 season approaches and another contestable day at mavericks goes by with no event I think its time to say the event organizers with their idiotic voting process and the Clark v Mavericks lawsuit have forever doomed a once great local event.....Goodbye and good luck. See you at the Eddie in 2014.

Bill, excuse me, Mr. Gates, thank you so much for posting your thoughts. I was initially surprised to see you on SR, but then I realized you probably have many more interests than the media credits you for having. I have to admit though, when I was landscaping your house on Lake Washington and your dad's house in Laurelhurst, I never saw any sign that you surfed. Maybe you picked up SUPing since then. It's been 15 years, after all. Nonetheless, we are honored that you're posting here. By the way, is Warren planning on investing in the Maverick Surf Venture after the lawsuit settles?

It looks like you're about to surf Mavericks.

Would you like help?

My two cents (and don't take it seriously or get offended anyone please)... so what? Couldn't someone else organize a contest if they wanted? Do the guys who surf Mavericks regularly actually care? They're all out there when it's breaking anyway, right? Personally I don't really give a toss if they have the contest or not. I guess I can hope that the contest will suck some of the crowd off the other breaks that I might be surfing. Yeah I love to see photos and stuff, but just doesn't really get me worked up one way or the other.

I am pleased to announce that lee and I will be organizing the first annual ###### Classic. Show up saturday, 1-hr before low-tide. 5$ buy-in. 1/2 the money goes to the winner, and half the money goes towards buying boulders to dump along OB to keep the waves away from the sewage line. We'll even convince some tourist to be the official photographer. (And we'll get crypto to convince some of those skinny runner-girls who frequent the Point to hang around and stretch or something in their spandex just to make this little event look legit.) Can I get a `hell yea'?
