    Sion Milosky, from Kauai, died Wednesday during a late-afternoon session at Maverick's. He was 35. Milosky's death is only the second at Maverick's involving a surfer. The other victim was renowned big-wave charger Mark Foo, also from Hawaii, who drowned after a wipeout in 1994. Milosky, one of many big-wave chargers on hand for the arrival of a late-season north swell at Maverick's, apparently got pummeled by a set wave in the waning daylight. Waves were not especially large by Maverick's standards, with faces around 20-30 feet. Conditions were sloppy.
