The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau - Waimea, Hawaii 09-10







The "EDDIE" is the most prestigious big-wave contest in the world. The event is named after Eddie Aikau - a famous Hawaiian waterman. The Eddie has only been held only 8 times in the last 25 years. This years winner was Greg Long of California.

I've lived on Oahu for my entire life yet I had never attended the Eddie Aikau Classic. I woke up early and drove my car to Lani's Beach. I parked along the road and rode my bike up to Waimea. Hundreds to spectators were there before the sunrise to catch the morning action. Waves of 30+ feet crashed on the shore of Waimea. Yeah... they'll be no jumping off Waimea rock today.
