THE EDDIE IS OFF FOR THIS XXL WNW. SO, NOW LETS GO BACK TO 2016

The QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU INVITATIONAL 2016 was the “greatest one-day Big Wave event in history”- WSL.

The Eddie delivered epic conditions – Honolulu media said 60ft faces. Big sets, big drops, big wipeouts and some amazing recoveries.

What an Incredible experience for all 25,000 of us filling that great amphitheater known as Waimea Bay.

“Super Bowl Of Surfing” indeed.

Congratulations John John Florence 13:20 and retiring Clyde Aikau 4:55 and all the invitees on memorable performances on a very memorable day 2/25/16.
