Surfing fans will have to wait at least another day before they can catch any action at the Hurley and Swatch Women’s Pro at Lower Trestles.
Organisers were forced to called a lay day overnight due to the small and fading surf on off
“There are still some small waves around but we know there’s something better on the way so we won’t be running any heats today,” said WSL Deputy Commissioner, Jessi Miley-Dyer.

“We’ve had four really great days of competition so far so we’re going to wait for some better surf for the final day.”
However, there is hope on the horizon.
Surfline, official forecaster for the World Surf League, says a fun, new SW and S swell will build in for the second half of the week, along with a modest increase in short period NW swell.
When competition resumes, up first will be either Joel Parkinson against Filipe Toled in the Men’s Quarterfinals or Bianca Buitendag (ZAF) taking on Lakey Peterson (USA) in the Women’s Semifinals.
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow at 7 a.m. local time to assess conditions and make a call for competition.
