    A selection of b&w photographs taken during the  2009 hawaiian big wave surfing competition in memory of Eddie Aikau.
  • "The Eddie" is a surfing tournament held at Waimea Bay on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Created in 1984 at Sunset, then changed to the infamous Waimea Bay where Aikau was a lifeguard and where he and his family were caretakers of the valley. The event has been named after famed Waimea Bay lifeguard Eddie Aikau, the irregularly-held tournament is known for a unique requirement that ocean swells reach a minimum height of 20 feet before the competition can be held. As a result of this requirement, the tournament has only been held eight times during the history of the event, most recently on December 8, 2009.
