The Eddie is on!!! And it's on Oceanic channel 250, live!!!
(To anyone who doesn't know about The Eddie surfing contest, the simplified background is that it's held at Waimea Bay and only on days where the waves are a consistent 40' or higher. I'm sure there's a website about it.)
You mainlanders can probably find live surf cams on the internet, like at Surfline.com and other sites.
They expect occasional waves to 50' and even 60', the biggest waves we've had here since 1969.
