For the first time in five years, "The Eddie" is back on Oahu's famous North Shore.The surf contest, named after legendary Hawaiian surfer Eddie Aikau, is put on only when waves top twenty feet.

That was no problem Tuesday. Massive waves up to 35-feet slammed the coast Tuesday morning.

The one-day tournament carries a $55,000 dollar top prize won by California surfer Greg Long.
