A drop in swell this morning has prompted event organizers at the Roxy Pro to call competition off for the day.
The opening event of the 2008 ASP Women’s World Tour season, the Roxy Pro has completed two rounds of competition with the women kick-starting the season in style last Sunday at nearby Duranbah Beach.
“The surf has dropped a bit today back into the two-foot range and finding a good wall out there is proving trying with today’s tides,” said Brooke Farris, ASP Women’s World Tour Manager. “The event forecasters have called for an increase in swell over the coming days, and with only three full days of competition remaining to complete both the women’s event, we’re waiting for the best conditions possible.”
When Roxy Pro competition resumes, Round 3 will hit the line-up with World No.4 Samantha Cornish (AUS) and 2008 ASP Women’s World Tour rookie Nicola Atherton (AUS) kicking things off. The Roxy Pro presented by LG will be webcast live on the ASP website – keep checking back there for further updates.
