OFFICIAL UPDATE FROM THE QUIKSILVER IN MEMORY OF EDDIE AIKAU
Fueled by Monster Energy

The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, fueled by Monster Energy, will NOT run today.

Contest Director George Downing is at Waimea Bay monitoring conditions, and has said he will have a close eye on conditions mid-afternoon today that will be his indicator for tomorrow.

At present, a heavy fog of salt mist generated by extra large waves of around 18 feet, mixed with light rain and cloud cover, blankets the North Shore. A solid stream of curious onlookers has been cruising Kamehameha Highway since before dawn.

Avoid traffic and hazards by watching the event live when it goes at quiksilver.com/eddie.

An update will be issued at 4pm Hawaii time this-afternoon. Log on to find out the call.
