Mavericks looking unlikely, but window extended to Apr 8

With the window closing for Mavericks in 2009, organizer Jeff Clark has extended the deadline for waves by a week, reports NBC Bay Area.

That’s because he extended his permit to hold the contest until April 8 and there is a chance that the waves will be big enough Sunday or Monday.

The ideal conditions would be waves around 30 to 40 feet.

"At this point, the storm season and winter are breaking down and  we’re going into spring now, and summer is soon to follow," he said. "We  don’t get snow in the summertime, and the same storms that bring us snow  bring us big waves in the winter."

Mavericks has been skipped three times since it began: in 2002, 2003 and 2007.
