News provided by ASP World Tour on 6 March 2006

The clouds have finally parted on Queensland, Australia’s Gold Coast as the storm that has literally bashed the area over the past few days has subsided.

The swell, that was out of control over the weekend, has abated to around one metre (three to four feet) and organizers of the Quiksilver Pro presented by Samsung have pushed the go button to resume round three.

The only hitch for the event, the first on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, has been that the bank for the site, known as “The Superbank” – due it serving up incredibly perfect waves over almost 1100 metres – has been changed due to the battering swell gouging out sand.

Organisers, therefore, have opted to shift the event further down the line, about 600 metres, to take advantage of the end section inside Greenmount Point.

Kicking off at 8am local time will be the Quiksilver Pro round three and expect fireworks as some of the matchups are as good as you’ll ever see.

Kicking off with powerhouse world number five Phil MacDonald (AUS) versus giant killing rookie Bobby Martinez (USA) in heat one, the day will certainly roll out to be one to remember.
