In the old days, only the Wide World of Sports provided access to anything other than the major sports. Not so today. I’ve spent the morning watching, live and on the Web, The Quicksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau at Waimea Bay.
This monster wave surfing contest is only held when the waves are greater than 40 feet. The Bay calls the day and this event has only been held 7 times in 23 years. The last was held in 2004. So, I got to see something that most people have only been able to see once or twice if they were in Hawaii at the right time.
And it was just amazing!
