Eddie Would Go, 36 Years Later

Bumper stickers. Tee-shirts. Posters. Nearly four decades after Eddie Aikau's disappearance at sea, "Eddie Would Go" has become a standard motif. At the 2014 opener for the annual big wave event in his honor, the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, surfers from Garrett McNamara (USA) to Sunny Garcia (HAW) and John John Florence (HAW) to Kohl Christensen (HAW) share what "Eddie Would Go" means to them. If the event does run this winter, it will stream LIVE on this site.
