Well that was radical...What a day! What a swell! Let's see...Major congrats are in order, @john_john_florence, for showing how comfy you are in gnarly situations and calmly winning #TheEddie in the biggest surf ever for an event at #Waimea. So many dudes sending it on giant waves these days and it was as great to watch as to participate for me. Thank you to the #AikauFamily and especially #ClydeAikau for your inspiration and commitment over these years, charging your final event into an age beyond mortal humans. Thank you @brock.little for inspiring this whole generation of chargers before there were jet skis and water patrol and life vests and names for outer reefs and more than just a few people wanting to surf big waves. I hope you all got to see it today or go have a look at the highlights online! Oh, and thanks to the water patrol and lifeguards on call to save our asses and Quiksilver for holding the event and supplying the float vests to keep us safe. #BrockSwell #30FootCloseouts @gopro #Hero4
