2011 Eddie Aikau

2011 Eddie Aikau - Legend has it that Eddie Aikau is always at night. And it may well happen that in Waimea Bay on the night of Wednesday 19 to Thursday, January 20, 2011 (count 11 hour time difference from Hawaii to 21 hours with us, it was not until 10 am there). All lights are flashing and the organizers are on a war footing in case of waves over 20 feet in favor of big wave riding would be to go tomorrow morning (tomorrow night for us).

But it is not enough of a “mammoth swell” off to Waimea wakes. It is necessary that this wave be well positioned with a northwest. If the swell is “too western”, it is mitigated by the island of Kauai which absorbs some of its passage. This is what happened to the session last Sunday in Waimea, where the waves were much leaner than expected. It is also particularly important that the winds are favorable. It has happened in the past that swell enough to launch the Eddie is tempered by an unfavorable wind.
