Fear and Character Factors at Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau
Surf News Network, 27 December, 2014. How do surfers get over the fear factor in massive surf? Chargers from Garrett McNamara (USA) to Kohl Christensen (HAW) talk managing fear at heaving Waimea Bay. Both surfers are among the invitees in the 2014/2015 Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau.
The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau was last held on December 9, 2009, and was won by California’s Greg Long. Long-range surf forecasts are currently eyeing the development of a potential “Eddie”-sized swell that could also arrive around December 9. The event has only been held a total of 8 times.
