From the SF Chronicle:

The Super Bowl of Surfing lived up to its legend today, and then some. The waves were so big they caused injuries on the sidelines.

Long before South African Chris Bertish won the $50,000 first prize at the seventh Mavericks Surf Contest north of Half Moon Bay, a series of waves crashed into some of the thousands of fans who had flocked to a beach to try to see the action.

Just after 9 a.m. near Pillar Point, 13 people were injured and at least 40 people were knocked off their feet, officials said. Many of them had been standing on a short concrete wall and were thrown back into rocks or mud by a surge of water.

Reportedly the waves were the best in the history of the event.

"In a hundred years there'll be a whole new set of people."
"Always poke the bears. They sleep too much for their own good."

"If you're good enough, they'll talk about you." - Tom Harmon
