A surfer was seriously injured at the Mavericks surfing spot in Half Moon Bay Saturday morning.

A passerby found the 30-year-old man face down in the water after he apparently wiped out on a wave. The man was not breathing, but good Samaritans brought him to shore and turned him on his side to drain water from his airway.

Emergency crews revived the man with CPR. He is now in serious condition at Stanford Hospital.
