“The hardest thing is pulling the trigger.” That’s what the Big Wave World Tour Commissioner — otherwise known as the guy who calls events on — told us a few weeks ago. His name is Peter Mel and you can read the full interview with him here. Pete said that a few hours after the Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational had been called off — which was a few days after it had been called on. It was a confusing turn of events that felt more like an elaborate fire drill than anything else. And now, those bells are ringing once again.

The Eddie has been given the green light for tomorrow. It’ll only go if the waves are 20+ feet (backs), so there’s a slight chance it gets called off again. But something about this one just feels different…
