Eddie Aikau at Waimea Bay
7 December, 2009 : - - Waimea Bay, Hawaii - Huge waves are pulsing through Waimea Bay . Invitees and Alternates of The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, fueled by Monster Energy, are putting on an incredible afternoon display. A 30-foot-plus set just closed out at the Bay.
Surfer Tom Carroll, was the first casualty today. As he dropped into a wave, the full power of the lip crashed down, compressing him and tearing apart his ankle. He left the beach in an ambulance and was bitterly disappointed he will not be surfing again this year.
I will Shoot tomorrow from the Bay.
