Finally! The 31st annual Quiksilver invitational memorial for Eddie Aikau is ON! After the Eddie Invitational was called off in the beginning of February, everyone began to question if the event would even run. To our surprise, a nice size swell hit Hawaii the beginning of the week, which set the Quiksilver Eddie back on track!
The Eddie is one of the most prestigious big-wave events held at Waimea Bay, on the North Shore of Oahu. The event runs between December and February, but only if the waves are sizing at 20 feet with 40 foot faces. The big-wave event is held in honor of the brave legendary waterman Eddie Aikau. We are very excited to see this event live, as it hasn’t run in 7 years.
Be sure to tune into this monumental event live here.
