Maverick’s DVD Released

Mavericks Surf Ventures, LLC
today announced this week the 2005 Mavericks Surf ContestR DVD will be
available in stores nationwide and online at on
October 25, 2005. The DVD captures an all-star field of the world’s
most courageous surfers putting their lives on the line to paddle into
some of the biggest waves on the planet for the coveted title and a
$75,000 prize purse.

The 2005 Mavericks Surf Contest took place on March 2nd, on just 24
hours’ notice, convening 28 of the best big-wave surfers in the world
and 30,000 fans to the renowned spot located one-half mile off the coast
of Half Moon Bay, Calif. Best known for its unique combination of giant
waves that have peaked at more than 60 feet, frigid waters, dangerously
shallow reefs and the occasional presence of great white sharks, the
infamous location has played host to four historic contests and has been
coined “the Super Bowl of big-wave surfing” by Sports Illustrated and
site of “the most dangerous waves in the world” by CNN.

The DVD, capturing all of the action, devastating wipeouts and more, is
considered the coming-of-age of surf DVDs. It combines the high
production value and broad appeal of the NBC Sports broadcast (shot from
seven water- and land-based cameras) with never-before-seen photos,
interviews and video taken from the personal archives of the people who
know Mavericks best. Epic moments include Shane Desmond’s 48-foot wave
that received the Billabong XXL Award for largest paddle-in wave ridden
in the world during the 2004/2005 season, and a candid interview with
surf legend Jeff Clark, the man who discovered Mavericks and rode it
alone for 15 years. Every year the Mavericks Surf Contest grows in
popularity, and in 2005 more than one million people in 50 countries
watched the television broadcast. The DVD will be available from retail
and online merchants such as Borders, Tower Records and Netflix on
October 25, 2005 for $19.95 MSRP.
