Mavericks Parking & Directions


Mavericks Surf Contest and Mavericks Festival Parking
During the Mavericks Surf Contest, street parking is horrendous and ticketing is aggressively enforced. In the past, the viewing areas were a long walk from most parking locations. Parking is limited, so arrive early.

Parking will be limited, so arrive early.

Parking is available at the Half Moon Bay Airport, along Hwy 1 or at select local areas. Walk-in or take a shuttle (if available). Free Bike Valet.
