Waimea Bay: there's a secret reef out there

The Hawaiian surfers are preparing for a very special big wave surfing contest. The Outer Reef Chance 'Em Big Wave Invitational 2011 will be held on the North Shore of Oahu, in a secret outer reef spot, located west of Waimea Bay.

There's a brand new format: two teams of sixteen goofy and regular footers will battle for the best and biggest waves. Proceeds will be used in the creation of surf clubs in the Hawaii's public state schools and in the local lifeguard organization.

The non-governmental organization "Save the Surfers" is supporting the event by raising awareness for safety procedures while surfing big waves.

The Hawaiian pro surfers competing in The Outer Reef Chance 'Em Big Wave Invitational 2011 will be signing autographs and offering several giveaways to everyone.
