Frank Quirarte, a photographer for Surfer Magazine, helped create the Mavericks Rescue Team following the death of a fellow surfer in 1997 and has since performed hundreds of jet ski rescues.
The team is out whenever there are large swells at Mavericks and can reach surfers in trouble faster than public safety personnel, he said.

Quirarte is a mainstay at Mavericks the legendary Big Wave spot located just North of Half Moon Bay. He works double duty shooting photos as Surfing Magazines Senior Photographer and also uses his PWC to pluck out surfers who have run into trouble. Quirarte uses a PWC (Jetski type watercraft) to get close to the giant waves that tower seventy to eighty feet. He was a perfect choice, stated Bill Sharp Odyssey Organizer. We need people who can survive in these extreme conditions. There are only a couple of people in the world with the training and experience to pull this off and Quirarte has proven this year after year in giant surf out at Mavericks.
I cant believe I was picked, said Quirarte. This is an experience of a lifetime. With the level of talent that have been selected to surf and the destinations we will visit, I believe the hundred foot wave might be ridden.
Quirarte and the Odyssey team have already been to the giant waves of the Oregon/Washington coast, Todos Santos Mexico, France, Spain and are on there way to Tahiti and Australia. The three-year expedition is being filmed by ArenaPlex a Hollywood film crew and is scheduled for release after its completion.
Quirartes photos have been on the covers of many major publications worldwide including Time Magazine, ESPN Magazine, Forbes, The LA Times, SF Chronicle, Surfer, Surfing, Fluir and the Surfers Journal. He is on staff at fifteen surfing publications worldwide. Quirarte has also made quite a name for himself as the creator/publisher of Mavsurfer.com a website dedicated to big wave surfing that is visited by millions of people every year. He is also credited with two popular Mavericks films that he directed, Year of the Drag-In and Return of the Drag-In.
Quirarte was born in San Francisco and grew up in Pacifica California. Left for the Air force after high school and ended up deploying to Operation Desert Storm. His unit was called into the San Francisco earthquake zone to fight the fires and he flew with Operation Just Cause over Panama. He has worked as a lifeguard/rescue boat operator/Instructor for the last seven years on the PWC Pro racing circuit (IJSBA), numerous triathlon and endurance events as well as Mavericks. He has ended up back home to live and surf on the coastside he knew so well.
