QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU NOT EXPECTED TO RUN


January 4, 2012 01:50AM

North Shore, Oahu, HAWAII (Tues. Jan. 3, 2012): Organizers of the Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau say that they are not planning on running the event tomorrow.

"The likelihood is slim to none," said event organizer Glen Moncata. "This is a fast-moving system that will likely peak overnight and drop throughout the day tomorrow. There will be some waves in the 20-foot range overnight, but very little of the 20+ scale that the event mandates tomorrow. It will be a good opportunity for competitors to warm up."

Surfers to be tested for drugs


In the 1960s and 1970s, it was the counter culture's sport of choice. With the long hair and beach bum lifestyle came marijuana and LSD. But surfing is set for a radical image change as its international governing body prepares to introduce comprehensive drug testing for professionals for the first time.

Amid growing evidence that the sport's drug culture has gripped even some of its elite athletes, the Association of Surfing Professionals will in 2012 roll out a policy for screening competitors and officials for performance-enhancing and recreational drugs.

Mason Ho charging at the historic Billabong Pipe Masters 2011 Bio:

My name is Mason Ho, born 1988. I live on the North Shore of Oahu. I pretty much do the same thing everyday. I wake up, do all the wake up stuff then get out into the water as soon as possible. I don't care if it's dead flat or 40ft. You will for sure see my truck at Sunset Beach, more than likely …
