With waves and conditions looking good, the 2013-14 Body Glove Mavericks Invitational will begin Friday at 8 a.m., competition founder Jeff Clark said.

The competition takes place only when organizers determine weather and wave conditions look right, and competitors can have as little as 24 hours' notice to arrive once the time is announced.
