Lol Jks, The Eddie Won’t Go Wednesday

Unfortunately, the event call has been changed due to a very pesky wind forecast.

The Eddie Aikau Invitational has been changed from green alert to yellow alert for this Wednesday (11/1). 

The winds look suspect for tomorrow, and as a result, both the Backdoor Shootout and the Eddie will not run.

For the past six years, the event has been called off for lack of swell during the event window. There was also that one time in early 21’ when a pesky virus prevented the event from running when the bay was closing out.

But, hopefully, if we all continue to cross toes/fingers, touch wood, avoid walking under Kaipo’s ladders etc, the event could get a run on the next swell-bomb in the coming weeks. The last time the event ran in 2016, a 24-year-old John Florence won. 

It was wonderful. 

This year’s list of invitees include:

Aaron Gold, Andrea Moller, Billy Kemper, Eli Olson, Emily Erickson, Ezekiel Lau, Grant Baker, Greg Long, Ian Walsh, Jake Maki, Jamie O’Brien, Jamie Mitchell, John John Florence, Josh Moniz, Justine Dupont, Kai Lenny, Keala Kennelly, Keali’i Mamala, Kelly Slater, Koa Rothman, Kohl Christensen, Landon McNamara, Lucas Chianca, Luke Shepardson, Makani Adric, Makuakai Rothman, Mark Healey, Mason Ho, Michael Ho, Nathan Florence, Nathan Fletcher, Nic von Rupp, Paige Alms, Peter Mel, Ramon Navarro, Ross Clarke-Jones, Shane Dorian, Taio Shipman, Tikanui Smith, Tyler Larronde

The event will be available to watch online via livestream.

We’ll keep you posted.
