SoCal skier rides giant waves at Mavericks on custom water skis

Daredevil surfers have been riding giant waves for years, but a Southern California skier is breaking new ground by skiing the same big surf.


Chuck Patterson spoke to FOX 5 from Dana Point about tackling the world-famous big waves at Mavericks surf break near Half Moon Bay. Patterson said he has been skiing since he was 2 years old and got into big wave surfing when he was older. So it seemed only natural to combine his two interests.


“It’s kind of a cool thing to blend the two — a little spicy obviously,” he said. “Nowadays, being ordinary is a little too ordinary.”
