Eddie Would Go
Hawaiian surfing ledgend Eddie Aikau was one of a kind. Taking off on a 30 foot wave at Wiamea is no small feat. Eddie would do it without fear and with a huge grin on his face. A simple, quite man, he loved the ocean and all it's mysteries. He also was a lifeguard at the beach he helped make famous. He saved many lives of the swimmers who did not have respect for the waves and the power of the ocean. It's been almost 30 years since he died trying to save the lives of the crew on his boat. If you have not read the book on his life, "Eddie Would Go", then check this tribute to him and read about this amazing man. Click here for the tribute.
