Celebrate the New Year Hawaiian Style with cultural activities & games, live hula and musical performances, local food vendors and artisans plus the first-ever Makahiki Kuilima 5k trail race.
Last February, the world marveled and cast their collective attention to the North Shore of O’ahu. With 40-foot-plus walls of water marching through the lineup at Waimea Bay, the Eddie—surfing’s most prestigious big-wave event—was given the green light as competitors in the invite-only contest pushed themselves over the ledge and raised the bar in big-wave surfing. And after a close call that nearly saw the event cancelled for the year, news broke late last week that The Eddie would run this year, if conditions permit.
The biggest night in surfing is right around the corner. That’s right, Surfer Awards, the surf world’s annual gala, is returning to Turtle Bay Resort on December 6. For more than five decades, Surfer Magazine has organized the awards show, which sees the publication’s readers vote on their favorite male and female surfers, as well as a host of other awards, including best movie and best maneuver.
