Eddie Didn’t Go….. Yet

The Eddie, one of the most well know and respected surf contested was almost declared a go over the past couple of days. the swell and wind looked good so the pro surfers and media circus that follows them arrived at Waimea Bay on the day forecast to be the best.

Alas, it was not to be, the height was there but the waves were just too inconsistent to hold the contest, regarded as the best big wave contest in the world, and certainly the one with the most prestige. The Eddie needs near perfect conditions to run so that it lives up to the legend of Eddie Aikau, Hawaiian hero and all round surfing star.

There’s still time for Eddie to go, the contest window is open until the 28th of February.

Have a quick read of this and look at the show the pro’s put on freesurfing despite the event not running, pretty good stuff with guys like Slater out, fresh off the back of his 10th world title: http://magicseaweed.com/Eddie-Went-West-Content/3028/1/

(just ignore some of the poor grammar and spelling mistakes)
