BREAKING!: Hawaii Sees Biggest Waves in Five Years (6 photos)


Thousands of people are flocking to Hawaii’s beaches to see monster waves crash ashore. Some of the world’s most daring surfers took on the powerful and dangerous waves, which forecasters say could reach heights of 50 feet (15 meters) by tomorrow.

Hawaii hasn’t seen such large waves since 2004 or 1998, said Robert Ballard, a forecaster for the National Weather Service. Teams of tow-in surfers – who use jet watercraft to race into waves too big to paddle – are flying to Maui from Brazil, South Africa and Australia, The Honolulu Advertiser reported.

A legendary big wave surfing contest, the Quicksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, may be held today for the first time since 2004 if waves reach a minimum of 40 feet (12 meters), organizers said. The event is only held in perfect conditions, and the waves weren’t quite big or smooth enough on Monday.
