Watch: Monster Mavericks
The North Pacific has fired up in a big way since the start of the Christmas holiday period with the strong El Niño finally bearing its fruits.
While Hawaii has been receiveing its fair share, recent storms have been more focussed towards the Californian coast, with one such swell being the largest in years.
Mavericks was in the tow-only realm with XXL peaks shifting and breaking all over the place.
Tim Bonython flew in for the swell and captrued the historic swell with additional drone footage thanks to Tucker Wooding.
The surfing footage starts around the nineteen minute mark, but if you want to watch the whole video, rewind back to the start.
