After a couple worthy swells and one false start, The Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau Invitational finally ran on February 25th, 2016. It was glorious! Arguably, the biggest, best Eddie ever, Waimea Bay was greeted by the #BrockSwell with 30′-40′ faces and extremely challenging yet surfable conditions all day long. The event was won by John John Florence, the youngest ever winner. In today’s show, David and Scott discuss all the wonder that was and then close out the show with brief look at the upcoming WSL season.
