Lay Day Called at Billabong Pro Tahiti

Billabong Pro Tahiti, Stop No. 7 on the Samsung Galaxy World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT). Competition is likely to recommence tomorrow when a new, more favorable swell is expected to build through the day and into Tuesday. “Things are definitely a little nicer than yesterday but it’s not very hollow and it’s not barreling out there,” Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner said. “Competition is off for the day today but we’ll be back tomorrow and we have a building swell that’s looking good, so we will definitely be running some heats on Monday. The direction and angle tomorrow are prime, which is important at Teahupo’o. It’s a decent swell with a good period and should be more powerful than what we’ve seen over the last few days. With this swell coming we’ve seen a lot more potential and these last two days should hold the best waves of the window”. When competition resumes, up first will be Josh Kerr (AUS) and Adrian Buchan (AUS) in Heat 9 of Round 3. Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow at 7 a.m. local time to assess conditions and make a call for competition. Surfline, official forecaster for the World Surf League, are calling for:   SSE/SE swell will trend down through Sunday. This is not a favorable swell direction for Teahupoo and surf will decrease through the day, although wind will be favorable. A new mix of mid to longer period SW swells will build through the day on Monday, peak late and continue Tuesday morning. Short period SE swell is also looking likely to build Monday and continue Tuesday to give the surf a bit of a mixed up feel at times. Breezy SE trades (sideshore) prevail Monday, with strong ESE trades (side/offshore) Tuesday.  The Billabong Pro Tahiti runs from Friday, August 14 to Tuesday, August 25, 2015 and is webcast LIVE at WorldSurfLeauge.com and via the WSL mobile app.]]>
