Mavericks Surf Contest 2010
Shawn Alladio of K38 headed up the training program for the 2010 Mavericks big wave surfing contest. The select team was comprised of the top fielded watermen familiar with the infamous big wave break.
For the first time in History, viewers can see what a water rescue professional's work feels like through the GoPro and David Pu'u imagery. Enjoy the captures from the water rescue team perspective in large waves at Mavericks during the contest on a deep winter swell in California. A personal view into a world only a few have experienced.
The 2009-2010 Mavericks Big Wave Surfing Contest water rescue team organized through the efforts of the Mavericks Surfers. Shawn Alladio was appointed as the Mavericks Water Safety Director and tasked to train a team of watermen who had local knowledge of the Mavericks big wave location at Pillar Point, Ca.
The team was chosen and the training began up to and through the Mavericks contest day and a follow up K38 Open Water Rescue Boat course in Morro Bay CA.
Working under the leadership of Katherine Clark, the Mavericks contest event organizer, the team rallied through emails, phone calls, and a 24 hour notice with limited on water time.
K38-Mavericks Water Rescue Team:
Vince Broglio, Russell Smith, Garrett McNamara, Ryan Augenstein and Shawn Alladio.
The K38 rescue support team rounded out with Ryan Levinson and reknowned Challenged Athlete, Jonathan Cahill and David Pu'u who documented the rescue teams story.
Brazilian big wave surfer Carlos Burle (orange jersey) is shown being recovered on Shawn Alladio's rescue board during the competition on a Go Pro camera attached to her rescue board. Zach Wormhoudt in the yellow jersey is recovered right before Mushroom Rock by Russell Smith wearing a GoPro chesty.. Garrett McNamara's helmet mounted GoPro catches some of his on-water work from the prestigious event. .
Many other fantastic staff and unrecognized volunteers worked the event land and water based, deserving many accolades for their support.
