Whilst many of us are settling down to enjoy the Christmas season, by over indulging with food and drink, there are a group of elite athletes that will be very much focused on the New Year and preparing for the first big wave event of 2015, the Titans of Mavericks. The yearly event takes place at Half Moon Bay, California and the waiting period for 2015 opens on January 1st and closes on March 31st.
What makes the Titans competition different from many any others, is that you can’t just rock up and pay your entry fee. To be one of the 24 Titan’s to compete you have to prove yourself all year round at the Mavericks arena. The Titans must be in top physical form, drug free, respectful to fellow competitors, and someone who gives back to the local community and actively promotes ocean conservation.
The 2015 Titans of Mavericks competition is not just about watching brave surfers, riding massive waves, the event is accompanied by a festival that features music, cultural events and food. All news on the Titans competition and festival can be found at the official Titans of Mavericks website here and when the conditions allow the event to proceed, you will be able witness things unfold via live webcast streaming and unusually through the medium of radio.
Some of the surfers who will be competing have been confirmed as Shawn Dollar, Grant “Twiggy” Baker, Shane Dorian, Greg Long and Chris Bertish and everyone of these athletes are known for their commitment to giving everything and never backing off on a wave. Who would you like to see lift the Titans of Maverick trophy in 2015 and will you be tuning in and watching things unfold at Half Moon Bay?
