No waves to ride

Asp World Tour Website
Thursday, June 06, 2013

AFTER monitoring conditions throughout the morning, event officials called off the Volcom Fiji Pro competition yesterday, with smaller two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves on offer at Cloudbreak.

Stop number four of 10 on the ASP WCT, the Volcom Fiji Pro completed the first 10 heats of competition in firing four-to-six foot (1-1.5 metre) barrels and action could return as early as today with a new swell on the way.

"While there are some good waves out there today, we're expecting excellent conditions for the remainder of the waiting period and have decided to call off competition for today," Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge said.

"We'll be back tomorrow morning at 6:30am to make a call for a restart to competition."

When competition resumes, up first will be Jeremy Flores (FRA), 25, Nat Young (USA), 21, and Kolohe Andino (USA), 19, in Heat 11 of Round 1.

Remaining Volcom Fiji Pro Round 1 match-ups: Heat 11: Jeremy Flores (FRA), Nat Young (USA), Kolohe Andino (USA) Heat 12: Adrian Buchan (AUS), John John Florence (HAW), Brett Simpson (USA)
