THREE-MONTH HOLDING PERIOD FOR THE QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU, FUELED BY MONSTER ENERGY, ENDS MONDAY
The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, fueled by Monster Energy, officially draws to a close on Monday, February 28, 2011. The event was poised to run on January 20 this year as thousands of spectators joined competitors at Waimea’s hallowed shoreline, but inconsistent 20-foot surf resulted in a “No Go”. That call drew overwhelming support of the event’s uncompromising standards. ‘The Eddie’ was last held in December of 2009. Since its inception in the winter of 1984/85, it has only been held eight times. We look forward to the official opening ceremony of the 27th annual Eddie on December 1, 2011.
