Vans Triple Crown and Eddie Aikau to See Huge Surf


The second jewel of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing, is scheduled to finish up today with the semi’s and finals being run at Sunset Beach on the North Shore of Oahu.  Fans are lining Kamehameha highway in order to catch a glimpse of local favorites and world competitors.

The surf, reaching heights of 25 foot faces during competition has come down today to wave heights of only 10 feet.  That’s quite a drop.  What’s even more interesting is that through the weekend, the north shores of Hawaii will see wave heights climb back up to over 30 foot faces.  Even though the competition will be finished up, those wishing to see some great surfing will still want to head up to the north shore and watch all those that are hanging around.

And that’s not all.  Come Monday, all of the north shore will see wave faces reaching 50 feet.  Meaning… the Eddie Aikau Big Wave Surf Competition at Waimea Bay may go!  You can keep posted by watching the surf updates at Surf News Network or check out the Eddie site which you can find out about at our earlier Eddie Aikau update.
