News provided by ASP World Tour on 27 May 2006

Surfers competing in the Globe WCT Fiji will switch surfboards for golf clubs again today as the famed wave known as Cloudbreak is doing it’s best impersonation of a millpond.

Organisers had no option but to call another lay day and with only one full day needed to complete the event they will wait for an increase in swell before kicking off with round four.

The forecast from indicates that a new swell will be arriving around Monday or Tuesday.

There are only 16 surfers remaining in the fourth event on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, including 11 Australians, four from the US mainland and one Hawaiian.

And while the wait for waves continues, the competitors have been partaking in other pursuits such as venturing to the Fijian capital of Nadi to play golf.

Andy and Bruce Irons (HAW), Trent Munro (AUS) and a host of others went to swing the clubs yesterday, and while it was stated that a good time was had by all, no-one willing to reveal their scores.

“I think Trent was better,” said Andy Irons.

“Nah, I think Andy did alright,” said Munro.

Considering they will square off in heat four of round four, perhaps there were mind games of some sort at play.

While that team were strutting around in their collars and long socks, the Hobgood brothers (USA) were hauling in tuna on a fishing expedition.

“We dropped some lines out to see what happened,” said Damien Hobgood. “And we had some good hookups… Some yellowtail and a few others. It was a great day.”

Round four heat draw:

Heat 1: Troy Brooks (AUS) versus Tom Whitaker (AUS)
Heat 2: Darren O’Rafferty (AUS) versus Damien Hobgood (USA)
Heat 3: Tim Reyes (USA) versus Nathan Hedge (AUS)
Heat 4: Trent Munro (AUS) versus Andy Irons (HAW)
Heat 5: Bobby Martinez (USA) versus Danny Wills (AUS)
Heat 6: Mick Fanning (AUS) versus CJ Hobgood (USA)
Heat 7: Taj Burrow (AUS) versus Luke Stedman (AUS)
Heat 8: Bede Durbidge (AUS) versus Shaun Cansdell (AUS)
