The Eddie Big Wave invitational ran the last day I was in Hawaii. This swell was the second XXL swell to smash Hawaii in a week. Seeing a 50 foot swell is rare, seeing two 50 feet swells in a week is unimaginable. The second of those swell was large and clean enough to run the Eddie- it had been a 7 year hiatus. To be able to photograph this event was a dream come true.
