Waking Waimea

There's been some huge waves at Waimea the past two weeks upwards of 70 foot faces. This picture is on the inside of the bay on a 25 foot day. The wave in the picture is at least 15 feet tall. Waimea is the home to the legendary Eddie Aikau Big Wave Competition. The tournament only happens once every couple of years. This day was ridable but too small. The church in the background is the iconic Saints Peter & Paul Mission Catholic Church seen in many Waimea photographs.
