Looks like a bunch of the Half Moon Bay crowd were there to greet Chris. Facebook shows Jeff Clark and Brian Overfelt giving him big hugs upon arrival.
You may, or may not remember, that Chris won the Mavericks competition in 2010. 2010 had the biggest waves ever competed in at Mavericks which at that time meant the biggest waves ever competed in the world - EVER! (This was pre Nazarre, pre Peahi . . )
There were a bunch of local fundraisers for Chris and I am glad he made it. I am sure more photos and morning news shows to come on his remarkable accomplishment.
