News provided by ASP World Tour on 16 July 2005

As tiny swell conditions again prevail in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, organisers have once again placed the event on hold for today, the third day in a row.

Even though the ocean is almost dead flat at present, Contest Director Mike Parsons is still confident that the long-range forecasts will bring swell after the weekend.

With the first two rounds having been completed in excellent conditions, the event, the sixth on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, has approximately two full days of surfing left with round three (16 heats), round four (eight heats), quarter finals (four heats), semi-finals (two heats) and final (one heat) to complete. .

With the 2005 Foster’s ASP Men’s Tour ratings so tight at present, spectators on the beach plus those watching it live on the webcast can expect a top-notch showdown as the event tapers down to the “business end”.

Only 320 points separate 1st and 3rd after Mick Fanning (AUS) recently claimed victory in Reunion Island.

Fanning has two wins under his belt and sits in 3rd on the rankings with 3820 points, while Trent Munro (AUS) has one win, and is sitting on 3876 points in 2nd, and Kelly Slater (USA) who also has two wins is sitting in the top spot on 4142 points.

Meanwhile reigning Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour champ and 2004 Billabong Pro winner, Andy Irons (HAW) who lurks just behind in 4th place on 3564, could easily throw himself back into contention with a win here.

Outside of the top four, in one of the tightest margins seen in years, a mere 321 points separates the surfers sitting between 5th and 10th. (See rankings below.)

Organisers will convene at Jeffreys Bay again tomorrow, Sunday morning, at 7am (local time) to assess conditions.

Surfers and spectators are now eagerly anticipating musician Donovan Frankenreiter’s performance tonight.

He is scheduled to perform two shows both tonight and Sunday nights (local time).

Frankenreiter, an accomplished surfer who is sponsored by Billabong and Von Zipper, started playing guitar and singing seriously at the age of 18. He formed the band Sunchild in California and has toured the globe appearing on the same bill as well known acts such as fellow surfer Jack Johnson and G.Love.

He his currently appearing on MTV and is also doing shows in Brazil and England before coming to South Africa and then will be touring Japan later this year. His J-Bay gigs will be solo and unplugged.
