John Pitre's Big Waimea Bay Shore Break is a collaboration between Dan Merkle's photograph of the wave, and John's artistic flavor to the giant and unforgiving reef break at the world-famous Waimea Bay. The Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational in Memory of Eddie Aikau takes place in here to honor the legendary surfer and the first lifeguard of the North Shore of Oahu. Open-ocean swells of about 20 feet generally translate to wave faces in the bay of 30 feet (9.1 m) to 40 feet (12 m). On January 28, 1998, Hawaii issued its first ever "condition black" legally closing all North Shore beaches including Waimea bay.
