NO GO announced by QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU Big Wave Invitational

eddiewouldgo-featureHONOLULU (December 28, 2012) — Organizers of the QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU big wave invitational have announced that the event is officially a “NO GO” for the upcoming December 30/31 swell.

“What we see is an inconsistent 20-foot swell with peak energy during Sunday night, and dropping after that,” said Contest Director George Downing. “We do not foresee the eight daylight hours of consistent 20- to 25-foot deep water swell (wave face heights of approximately 40 feet) that is the minimum requirement for this event to run.”

In its 28th year, the QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU has an excellent track record for making the right call. The event is held in memory of Waimea Bay lifeguard and big wave pioneer Eddie Aikau, who lived for those rare days of epic wave size and quality that are the yardstick for the event. “The Eddie” has only been held at Waimea Bay a total of seven times when conditions have met the criteria.

About Eddie Aikau:
Just 31 years of age when he was lost at sea during an ill-fated voyage of Hawaii’s Hokule’a double-hull sailing canoe in 1978, Aikau was a young man at the height of a career equally dedicated to big-wave riding and lifeguarding at historic Waimea Bay. Filled with a pure passion to ride giant surf, take care of his fellow man, and uphold his Hawaiian culture and family values, Aikau became the benchmark by which all big wave riders are measured.
