An extra large swell is forecast to batter Oahu's North Shore this week, but uncertainty still surrounds the actual height of the waves that will materialize
and whether this latest episode will give the green light to the Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau, Fueled by Monster Energy. There is no question that the north Pacific system
generating the anticipated swell has the potential to deliver waves of "Eddie" size, but it now comes down to the directional focus of the swell. Organizers of the event will continuously monitor
developments of this swell that is expected to peak on Oahu's North Shore on Thursday, January 20.
"The system generating the surf is definitely gigantic and certainly as strong as predicted, covering roughly 18,000 square miles of the north Pacific," explains George Downing, Contest Director of The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau. "But up to now, the strongest winds generating the open ocean swells have not been aimed at Hawaii. This can change as the system passes the dateline, so we will have to be patient."
