The Eddie: YELLOW Alert of Thursday 25 February


width="789"

The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau has been put on Yellow Alert for a possible run this Thursday, February 25. For the second time in this winter's waiting period invited big wave riders and organizers will gather at Waimea Bay in the morning to see if this year’s event meets the #EddieWouldGo strict wave height criteria. The call to GO will only be made at the beach on Thursday morning at 6am (local time) for 8am start. Not before.


As noted in an earlier update a lot has changed in 7 years, so this time around we’re bringing you The Eddie Psych Spotify playlist and we’ll be snapchatting live from the water. Follow username “radicaltimes69” to get your hit of massive swell goodness.
