Mavericks, the annual competition that sees surfers tackling giant swells near Half Moon Bay, California, started and ended Friday, with some of the world’s best big-wave surfers coming out and catching the face of 25-foot waves.

Nic Lamb, Zach Wormhoudt, Anthony Tashnick and Tyler Fox were just a few of the Maverick success stories, with each advancing to the Titans of Mavericks semifinals. Lamb, 27, was eventually declared the winner at about 3:15 p.m PST. The 27 year old has been surfing in big-wave competitions since he was a child, and he first tackled Mavericks at the age of 14.
