Quicksilver’s Big Wave Invitational in Memory of Eddie Aikau aka ‘The Eddie’ is named for the North Shore’s first lifeguard and legendary surfer, who was lost at sea in 1978. It’s one of the most rare, exclusive surfing contests in the world, occurring only when the waves in Oahu’s Waimea Bay exceed 30 feet high. Because of the stringent criteria, the event has only been held 8 times in 25 years, and the last was in 2004.
