That would be awesome!  If it goes, I hope Greg Long is well enough to participate.

Also on tap is the Red Bull filming of a prone paddle in deal at Peahi.  They've hired many and spent mucho.  GL is definitely included in the invitees.  Unfortunately they will block off ocean and land access to the area and even restrict air traffic around the site.  So you'll have to see their movie to see it.

Will they actually run both the same day?
Seems like with only 28 invitees to the Eddie, that there are a lot of big wave riders available to do the Red Bull.  The names would be at the Eddie though.
HM, how do they block off ocean access?

red bull jaws website says 12/30 & 12/31 contest dates are off

Do they hire the same people to close off the area  for contest that Bill Gates used to close off Lanai entirely  for his wedding (which did not work) ?    LOL

I'd guess with the many jet skis they've hired to patrol and provide safety.

It's always a circus out there.  Now it'll just be their circus.  They're hiring many people and spending beaucoup so I guess it's all good... at least for the economy on the island.

Right now things seem to be on hold for both events.

SUSed this morning in very small but glassy stuff.  Fun but no sign of any big forerunners while I was out.
