A tall and slender Hawaiian, George Downing was one of the early big wave pioneers in Hawaii during the late 1940's and 1950's. He shared his skills and the knowledge of his ancestors with everyone he met. Currently he is using his skills and leadership as the executive director of the Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Memorial event held in large surf at Waimea Bay.
