|Griffin Guess And Jeff Clark Tell Rocky Raynor To Stifle It |
Just when you think the people who think they own the Mavericks wave can't possibly make themselves look even more obnoxious, they do. Here is an email that Guess and Clark sent to a whole bunch of people. If they wanted to get it out, they should have just sent it to us:
In other words, they will not have anybody saying disparaging things about them.
Meanwhile, a battle is brewing at the Harbor District over who gets the next permit. Jeff Clark and his cronies or a rival Surfing League.
As Cartel failed to provide Liability Insurance for the event until 27 days after the opening of the contest window, it seems they are either under capitalized or inept. It is simply unacceptable for the Harbor District to be put at risk by Cartel/Mavericks failure to adhere to the most basic of requirements.
The permit issued by the SMCHD is a disaster. It is full of contradictions and like the late insurance, Cartel didn't sign it until weeks after the opening of the contest window.
Clark and his cronies have once again screwed up. Clark likes to say that Mavericks will take care of itself. Not sure what that means as Mavericks is nothing more than a fickle wave but if it could have been killed. Clark and his cronies would have done so by now.
And they still might just decide to kill it next year for strategic reasons. Body Glove has sued Clark, Guess, and the rest of the usual suspects for breach of contract. There is little doubt that the contract has been breached but the guns Clark and Guess have hired claim that since there has been no contest, Body Glove can't sue because they haven't been harmed.
This means that as soon as the contest is held Body Glove will have been harmed, according to Guess's and Clark's attorneys. If and when they hold the contest, their legal strategy against Body Glove becomes useless.
Turn the event over to professionals. Size it for the Coastside. Griffen Guess does not own the wave. He bought the right to control the bluffs and beach from Mavericks. There is nothing in the agreement between Mavericks and the SMCHD that allows the transfer of the permit. Cartel has been proven not to be trustworthy when it comes to honoring the terms of the agreement.
