Whatever you're doing right now, it cannot be as cool as what's going on at the Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational in Memory of Eddie Aikau, kicked off today at Waimea Bay on Oahu's north shore. It's an invitational surfing competition that's as rare as it is revered, held only when waves in the bay reach 30 feet in height. Known by its more manageable name, the Eddie, it's named for a beloved local surfer and lifeguard lost at sea in 1978.
The tournament's history can be perused here, and if you're working late on the east coast or bored early on the west, you can watch the whole thing streamed live right here. Then run a few yellow lights on the way home. Y'know, to feel alive.
