Lay Day on Gold Coast, WSL Extends Window for Swell

tomorrow and reassess conditions.” “After a lot of discussion with the athletes, our on-site staff, our executive team in Los Angeles, our event partners and the local government, we have extended the competition window two days to take advantage of a swell system moving in,” continued Perrow. “The WSL is the world’s best surfers in the world’s best waves and the extension is an illustration of our commitment to that philosophy. It’s a significant financial, personnel and energy expenditure for the league, but we’re passionate about the world’s best surfing and we’re excited to see what this swell brings.” Three-time World Champion Mick Fanning (AUS) will face wildcard Dane Reynolds (USA) in the opening heat of Round 2 when competition resumes, while 11-time World Champion Kelly Slater (USA) will take on trials winner Jack Freestone (AUS) in Heat 2, both battling for a place in Round 3. The Roxy Pro Quarterfinalists are set and reigning six-time WSL Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) will take on Silvana Lima (BRA) for the third time this competition. Surfline, official forecaster for the World Surf League, are calling for: Modest, steep angled S swell will impact the region today. This swell gradually eases throughMonday as the direction shifts more SSE. Small easterly trade swell is expected on Tuesday as SSE swell eases further. A gradual increase in E trade swell is expected for the mid to second part of next week. Our team will be closely monitoring the progress of the tropical disturbance currently developing approximately 750nm NW of Nadi, Fiji. While this could enhance E/NE swell for the region mid and especially late in the week, the details are highly uncertain at this time. We’ll also be watching another front to bring a surge of S winds up the Tasman Sea late in the week as well. The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast will be webcast LIVE at WorldSurfLeague.com. The world’s best surfing will also be broadcast LIVE on Fox Sports in Australia, MCS Extreme in France, EDGE Sports in China, South Korea Malaysia and other territories and the WSL’s new partner in Brazil, Globo TV.
