Mavericks surf contest opening window delayed

HALF MOON BAY, Calif.

The contest takes place almost every winter at Pillar Point and draws elite surfers from around the world.

The organizer says one reason for the delay is to avoid conflicting with another pro surf contest in Hawaii.

Mavericks has had trouble getting sponsors in recent years. Officials did not say if that has anything to do with the delay.
