Awaiting "Eddie" Waves at Wiamea Bay

The "window" is open until Feb. 28.
They won't hold the contest/meet unless it's over 20 feet, Hawai'ian. Then the call goes out, and all the gnarliest, hardiest, bravest big-wave surfers in the world descend on the Bay, to relive the cry "Eddie would go!" in memory of legendary surfer/waterman Eddie Aikau, who disappeared at sea, in 1978.
When you get right to that hair-ball lip, and it's 15 or 50 feet straight down, and you start to think, that's when you wanna hear "Eddie would go..." inside your head, and you kick it and drop...
