TUESDAY, December 8, 2009 - 7:30AM

The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, fueled by Monster Energy, has officially been called "ON" by Contest Director George Downing. The ASP specialty sanctioned event will kick off at 8am. Wave face heights are in the 25-35-foot range.

Held in honor of the legendary Hawaiian waterman, Eddie Aikau, The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, fueled by Monster Energy, gathers the most skillful and dynamic big-wave surfers from around the globe. It is the world's longest running and most prestigious big-wave invitational and is the only one sanctioned by the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), the governing body of professional surfing.

Because The Eddie requires waves at least 20 feet in size during the annual one-month holding period, The Eddie has only run seven times in its 24-year history.
