This was supposed to be the first year that women competed in the annual Mavericks surfing competition, but this year’s event has been now been canceled.

Embroiled in lawsuits and financial struggles, the competition has been officially called off for 2017, according to the New York Times.

The decision follows several weeks — months, in fact — of “will they or won’t they” due to bankruptcy issues.

The event hasn’t had quite the same appeal in recent years, however, due to changes in ownership and other bureaucratic issues.
