Two unintended mistakes in the video. Ira Opper was mistakenly identified as Ira Popper. And Clyde's experience in the 2016 Eddie was mistakenly identified at 2017.
Closing night at the 10th Honolulu Surf Film Festival had a very exciting post film talk by Clyde Aikau. He brought photos and gave an animated play by play of his personal experience at the 2016 Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Big Wave Challenge at Waimea Bay. As we all know, this was likely the biggest rideable day that the Eddie has ever been contested.
You didn't have to be there to enjoy this talk. Here it is on video.
Thanks to the Doris Duke Theatre and theatre manager Taylour Chang and festival curator Sarah Fang for hosting this festival. Thanks to Anna Trent Moore for corralling all of the high profile surfers for this closing night panel discussion.
