The Eddie at Waimea Bay on Standby

The Eddie (or the Quiksilver Invitational at Waimea Bay in Memory of Eddie Aikau if you want to be a corporate dick about it) is on standby on Oahu's north shore this morning. The Eddie has popped off only 8 times in 25 years due to the 20-foot wave size requirement. Super big waves, no jetskis.

The call will be made in about 10 minutes' time as to whether they'll stage the event today, but regardless of whether they make it official, head over to the official website to see a live webcam of the gnar.

The Eddie will be going off today starting at noon CST. Cowabunga.
