The Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau Invitational Big Wave Surfing Contest was held at Waimea Bay December 8th 2009 attracting surfers and spectators worldwide. The 25th anniversary of what is widely considered the world’s most prestigious big wave competition was held in 30 – 50 ft. surf before a crowd estimated up to 30,000. A live webcast attracted more than a million more viewers.
The event was won by Greg Long in a dramatic come-from-behind finish over Kelly Slater.

Years later Bruce Brown’s “The Endless Summer” would widen our horizons. Since I’ve settled here the majority of my images have been of Hawaii but last year we discovered another photographer’s paradise. The Bavarian Alps. The previous year we discovered the equally beautiful light of New Zealand’s Southern Alps.
