Q: What do Mavericks and Wall Street have in common? A: Money

Ever wonder where the $150,000 Mavericks prize money–the highest of any surf contest in the world–came from?

From Wall Street, of course.

Mounir Guen and Jane Sutherland of MVision, a New York and London-based private equity firm coughed up half of the prize money from their own pockets. They were matched by California’s Barracuda Networks.

The Wall Street Journal has more.
