Big Wave Chargers on Eddie Opener

Some of the world's best big wave surfers gathered at Waimea Beach Park for the 30th Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau opening ceremony December 4, 2014. During the afternoon event, which included a welcome from a Kahu, a blessing and a paddle-out, invitees and alternates shared what it means to be invited to the Eddie.

While they wait for swell big enough for the Eddie to run, the chargers are pulling into beasts at other spots. Check out their XXL Awards submissions and where the Big Wave World Tour heads next.
