Why is Mavericks so dangerous? What makes it one of the most dangerous in the world?

Sean Ryan says:

this isnt even the most dangerous wave in california let alone the world. its still one of the most dangerous no doubt, but most dangerous? nah. Ghost Tree is more dangerous in California and there are other random waves in Central California that break right near the cliffs like Shipsterns, but I havent seen them ridden yet.
