March 1st Extension Could See Ku Ikaika "Go" - Big Wave Stand Up Paddle PDF Print E-mail

(Makaha, HI) An official one-day extension to include March 1st has been applied to the holding period of the third annual Quiksilver Ku Ikaika Challenge, presented by C4 Waterman. Competitors are asked to be on standby as organizers follow the developments of this final system that is forecast to deliver waves in the extra-large to giant category for the Hawaiian Islands on Monday - exactly what the event requires to "go".

The decision to extend the official holding period by just one day was made yesterday as the intensity of this latest storm developed. It is highly unusual for extensions to be made, but with what could be the Makaha swell of the winter just hours outside of the original shut-off date of February 28, organizers of the Quiksilver Ku Ikaika Challenge have faith that the call may pay off.

The Ku Ikaika Challenge will offer a total prize purse of $10,000, with $3,000 going to the winner. The main event will consist of 30 invited surfers plus six wildcards. (Listed below.)

"Ku Ikaika", a Hawaiian phrase that means "stand strong", references both the upright nature of the sport of stand up paddle surfing and the call to uphold a healthy and positive approach to wave riding.
