With waves up to 50 ft high, Waimea was the first and most famous big wave surf spot in the world for decades. With the advent of tow-in surfing, bigger wave breaks have been discovered, but the bay still holds a significant place in the world of big wave surfing.

The Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational in Memory of Eddie Aikau takes place in Waimea Bay to honor the legendary surfer and the first lifeguard of the North Shore of Oahu.
