Surfers Invited For Eddie Aikau Contest

By Liz Chun - bio | email

While "Eddie Would Go," not everybody can go for the contest in honor of the legendary waterman. Only a selected group of competitors make up the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau. Twenty-eight invitees and twenty-four alternates made the exclusive list on Tuesday. It takes a very skilled surfer to live up to the requirements, waves must be at least 20 feet high to run this. The holding period begins on December 1 and goes till the end of February.
