Nadat de competitie vier dagen bezig is met goede condities, is de swell verminderd en is de organisatie genoodzaakt een lay day te houden.

“The swell is on the decrease and the onshore winds are scheduled to get worse throughout the day so we’ve called a lay day,” vertelt ASP International Head Judge Rich Porta. “I cannot remember a time when we’ve ran the first four days of a combined event and we’re in a good position to capitalize on the remainder of the waiting period. The swell forecast for this weekend looks promising but we’ll be back tomorrow morning to assess conditions and make a call then.”

Gelukkig is de video met highlights van gisteren beschikbaar, met daarin onder andere de perfecte score, een 10, van Joel Parkinson.
