February 25th should have been a state holiday in Hawaii. After a 6 year wait the Eddie Aikau memorial surf contest was on! The waves on Oahu's north shore have to reach a ginormous 40 feet before the annual contest is a go. That's only happened 8 times in the last 31 years! We were super excited to watch the live feed. It was an awesome show.. thanks Quicksilver! Congratulations to John John Florence for the win. What an awesome way to honor hero Eddie Aikau.
Here's the poster from this year's event, hanging in our dinning room :)
