Q&A: Big Wave Surfer Sarah Gerhardt

Published Tuesday February 28

Comments Frigid waters. Jagged, tooth-like rocks. Great white sharks. And a punishing swell that folds in half, willing and able to crush anything in its way. When they break, the waves at Mavericks look like kind average-sized surf—from the shore. But that’s really only because, at two miles out, the action is a lot farther away than it looks. With its waves occasionally topping out at more than sixty ft. this break is anything but average.

Does your stomach go into your throat a little bit?
