The Eddie 2016

Can't wait to watch "The Eddie" (Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau) this afternoon! On for the first time in six years this event that only takes place when the waves are over 20 ft on the North Shore of Oahu. Eddie Aikau was a big wave surfer and Waimea lifeguard who was tragically lost at sea. The event has only taken place eight times!

Watch it: on the WSL website.
Read about it: on Wikipedia.

Amazing line-up of surfers. The only person missing, as far as I'm concerned, is our own UK big wave surfer Andrew Cotton! Ha ha! #cottywouldgo

UPDATE: Spoke too soon. It's not on today.
