Quiksilver In Memory Of Eddie Aikau Opening Ceremony Photos

The 2008 Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Opening Ceremony kicked off on a beautiful afternoon at Waimea Bay. The surf was absolutely perfect all day and at the end of the moving ceremony and the paddle circle, the invited competitors all shared a few fun waves at the bay.

The North Pacific is just getting started so stay tuned for more swell news coming soon and be sure to sign up for text updates so you'll know when the bay calls the day.
