Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau

ASP Specialty Event
Waimea Bay, Oahu Hawaii
1 December 2013 - 28 February 2014

Invitees and Alternates will join with the Aikau Family

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 December, 2013 - The 29th annual Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, the original one-day big wave invitational surfing event, will officially open its holding period with the traditional Hawaiian Opening Ceremony at Waimea Bay tomorrow, December 5, at 3pm.

Event Invitees and Alternates will join with the Aikau Family and Hawaiian Kahu Billy Mitchell to honor Aikau and welcome the winter big wave period.
 
"When someone passes from this form of life or the physical to the spirit realm, the act of drawing on that soul becomes sacred," said Kahu Billy Mitchell, in advance of Thursday's ceremony.

"In any language or race when you draw from the soul of such a beloved human being as Eddie, this is sacred. It must be done with deep respect and it must be shared with anyone who would receive this good energy in a respectful way."
 
The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau has only been held a total of eight (8) times, most recently on December 8, 2009. California's Greg Long took the honor that year.
