Lay day called at Margaret River

Organisers have been forced to call a lay day at the Margaret River Pro on Monday morning, due to unfavourable conditions.

WSL Deputy Commissioner Jessi Miley-Dyer said there has been a decrease in the swell this morning, after a weekend of pumping waves.

“The winds will also be very tricky, so we are calling today off,” Miley-Dyer said.


“We anticipate improved conditions in the forecast later this week. We will come back tomorrow at 6:45 a.m. to reassess and make the next call.”

With the field narrowed down to the men’s quarter-finals and women’s semi-finals, it will be an exciting finals day when competition gets back underway.
