Big wave surfing at Waimea Bay
The world famous Waimea bay, when it starts breaking in El Niño wintertime, it's the premier big wave spot, you'll find a lot of pro's and big wave legends in the water.
Not the longest wave, or the most perfect. But big.
In winter time it's home for the famous Eddie Aikau Big wave classic on the North Shore of Oahu.

Another solid swell hit the islands Sunday night, and the Bay was firing on Monday morning, January 11th. (video Jan 16th)
Lots of wipe outs, a tow-in ride at first light, heavy barrels.
