All Time Eddie
Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu delivered surf of absolutely epic proportions on Tuesday, December 8th. With the best big wave riders in the world conveniently on Oahu for the annual surf contest season, the 25th annual Quiksilver In Memory Of Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational Fueled By Monster Energy will go down as the best big wave contest ever, hands down, no questions asked. Cementing his reputation as one of, if not the best, big wave rider in the world, California’s Greg Long edged past Eddie champions Bruce Irons, Kelly Slater, and Keone Downing to win a whopping $55,000.—Justin Coté
