Waimea Bay is one of those places that I have to see before I take the long dirt nap. In the world of surfing this is where men can become legends.
Eddie Aikau is a true legend in the surfing world. A big wave event is held at Waimea in his memory every winter. An invitation only roster filled with the best big wave riders from all over the world compete. To be invited is a huge honor. The event only happens when the waves are big enough and conditions are right.
Winter 2009 Eddie went.
