With spring in the air and the reefs on the North Shore laying fallow, we may be bidding our adieus to Hawaiian winter, but as a parting gift, we’re left with a reminder of just what a winter it was in the form of Evan Valiere’s North Shore Big Wave Challenge. Contests don’t get more grassroots than this. According to a recent press release from the event, voting is now open for the best GoPro clip. Check the jump below for more info:
