It's been called one of the most dangerous surf competitions in the world, and for the first time it will be a co-ed contest.
After mounting pressure to include women as well as a lingering meeting by the California Coastal Commission to consider an appeal by the Committee for Equity in Women’s Surfing, Titans of Mavericks competition organizers announced Thursday it would include six women in an inaugural women's division for the first time.
This is a notable moment in the history of the Titans of Mavericks competition, which has never named a female winner.
A sizable hurdle to jump for female big-wave surfers, as the all-male panel had not previously invited a woman to be an official competitor in its 17-year history.

Despite the team's overall struggles, fifth-year pro Terrelle Pryor is finding himself in Cleveland.
With his rushing, receiving and even passing contributions, his stock has quickly risen under the Hue Jackson regime.
The Browns have been impressed enough where they've reportedly had preliminary contract extension talks with Pryor, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
Pryor, 27, is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

In Cleveland this year, Pryor is 5-of-9 passing with 44 yards, has 21 rushing yards and a touchdown on eight attempts, and has a 33 receptions on 59 targets for a whopping 477 yards and three touchdowns.
