The current Waimea Bay buoys are reading 8.2ft at 18seconds (up from this morning 6.9 at 12) – This morning ‘The Eddie’ got called off due to the lack of swell to hit the bay! Their are currently 4 guy’s in the water right now surfing.
The Eddie Aikau surf contest held at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu is now on a yellow alert. Many locals in Hawaii we’re telling us that they thought the Eddie would not run this year due to money issues with Quiksilver (going bankrupt).
“…and yet another system to form off Japan tracking east with seas to 52 ft on Wed (2/10)” – StormSurf.com

Surfer Magazine has just released their newest issue of Kelly Slater pulling into a man-made tube located near Fresno California.
DC Shoes (owned by Quiksilver/Bankrupt) and Rob Dyrdek are now parting ways. We’re guessing DC by no way can afford what they we’re paying Rob!

“It is not a “profit-less theft”. You guys had likes, created content, and have advertisers who pay to be on this page created by stolen material. You are making a profit by exploiting other people work and infringing copyright. Call it like you want, but Stab, Inertia, and you, are all small time thief. You are making money, and the person you stole the video from doesn’t. You are just a thief.
THIEF. Say it, own it, and live by it. If that is who you want to be. A thief, making profit of other people work.Why don’t you instead create new material?” – Alberto

Seems Craig Anderson who is already on board with HUF (shoe company after Keith Hufnagel) is joining Dylan Rieder and Austyn Gillette and starting a new brand called Destroyr.
“Rumors from possibly another country have floated across my desk that Craig Ando will, in fact, join Dane Reynolds in his new brand which is still just a rumor but called allegedly Destroyer.” – Chas Smith/Beach Grit
“So, what can we expect next from Craig? Stab’s guess would be that Craig will join Dane’s new brand, credible murmurs of which emerged late in November involving a clothing label and skaters Austin Gillette and Dylan Reider. Some of the best skate brands (HUF, Girl, etc) are run by pro skaters, and you’d like to think that surf brands run by surfers will resonate in the market the same way. These guys know how to engage an audience and have a clear connection with their aesthetics. With the rollercoaster surf industry the way it is, there’s every chance this new venture could slingshot to become the next big thing.” – Stab Mag
