The largest surf break off California is called Mavericks. It was first conquered when a one-of-a-kind teenager paddled miles off shore to find the phantom giant waves of California. Common wisdom was that California had no giant waves. But when storm season hit, one young man was certain that he could see giant waves breaking out on the horizon. He grabbed his surfboard, and paddled, alone, miles off shore, and proved that the monster waves were a reality. He followed his vision, and discovered his dream.
When Samuel Maverick, a Texas rancher, refused to brand his herd, his cattle ran free on the range, independent, unclaimed and unbranded. Those “Mavericks” gave their name to a unique American archtype. A Maverick is an independent individualist, a strong non-conformist who doesn’t follow the crowd. When everyone else is branded with the mark of the herd, Mavericks stand alone.
