The Eddie played host to some of the biggest swells seen, but not as big as these wipeouts!

To have Eddie Aikau remembered in such an honourable way is magic.

The guy was the first lifeguard at Waimea Bay, who eventually partnered with his younger brother  Clyde to never lose a life under their watch.

If that wasn’t honourable enough, Eddie established himself as one of the biggest names in big wave surfing, never missing a major swell between 1967 and 1978.

We feel some of these dudes, however, will be a bit hesitant to enter next year’s tournament!
