NO COMPETITION TODAY

 
HONOLULU (Jan. 21, 2009) — Organizers of the Quiksilver Premium Ku Ikaika Challenge, sponsored by C4 Waterman, have decided NOT to run today. While the swell at Makaha is from an optimal direction, it is not of the desired height. Waves this morning are around eight feet with the occasional larger set, offering competitors a great warm-up day of surfing.

The Quiksilver Premium Ku Ikaika Challenge, sponsored by C4 Waterman, has a holding period of January 15, through February 28, 2009.

The Quiksilver Ku Ikaika Challenge is the world’s only big-wave stand-up paddle surfing competition and invites 32 of the world’s leading exponents of the sport to compete at Makaha Point, on the West Side of Oahu, Hawaii, on a single day within the holding period when wave face heights reach a minimum of 15 feet.
