Just as the buzz around the 31st annual Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau big wave invitational is in full effect, so are my dreams about my own North Shore abode. Instead of getting up before the sun to race up to Waimea Bay, only to fight for parking and a perfect spot on the beach, I imagine myself coasting down from my beach bungalow, home-brewed coffee in hand. 

Let the surf shack home decor dreaming commence.
