Quiksilver Ku Ikaika Challenge, by C4 Waterman, Draws to a Close

Holding Period Ends But No Competition

Makaha, HI — A record winter of surf on the North Shore of Oahu failed to deliver to the West Side within the allotted one-and-a-half month holding period, resulting in a “no go” for this year’s Quiksilver Ku Ikaika Challenge, presented by C4 Waterman, at Makaha. Despite record patience and an extension to the holding period, Mother Nature cast the final dice and came up short. Makaha delivered only eight- to 10-foot of swell today and organizers elected to wait another year. Visit for more info.
