I received a link to a press release announcing that the public can vote for the invitees into the North Shore’s if not the world’s most prestigious surfing contest, the Eddie as it’s known to locals. So I voted for my hanai cousin and favorite big wave surfer’s I’ve known and surfed with over the years. I also voted for the 3 surfer girls on the list. Here is a link to vote in the poll: http://polls.quiksilver.com/. I also noted its the 25th anniversary of the event, which is pretty cool and for the first time a second sponsor is on board for this most prestigious surfing contest.  More latter, dinners up.
