Surfers catch a massive wave, at Waimea Bay on Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011 on Oahu, Hawaii North Shore. Organizers of the big wave surfing contest known as “The Eddie” say Waimea Bay’s aren’t consistently large enough to hold the event. The contest in memory of legendary Hawaiian surfer Eddie Aikau is only held when waves are at least 20 feet. It’s only been put on eight times since it was founded in 1984.
