The most famous surf contest in memory of Eddie Aikau almost happened today, but the ocean had different plans. The swell filled in during the afternoon and there were a lot of big waves being ridden. These are some of the gnarliest drone shots I have gotten of surfing. Many near crashes with waves and definitely lots of spray on the drone after every flight. Well worth it. If you know anybody in the video, let me know so I can send the video clips to them.
