LAY DAY CALLED FOR DAY ONE OF BILLABONG PRO JEFFREYS BAY
News provided by ASP World Tour on 12 July 2006
With only meagre waves lapping in at Jeffreys Bay, South Africa today, organisers of the Billabong Pro have elected to call a lay day for the main event.
There is however the possibility that the trials could kick off if the swell jumps up in the latter stages of the morning.
“It looks like it could come up today but at this stage there will be no main event,” said contest director Mike Parsons. “There is a remote possibility that we could run the trials today but it is highly unlikely. We are just taking it day by day and we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. There is good swell predicted on the horizon however.”
Regarding the heat draw for the Billabong Pro Jefffreys Bay, which is the sixth event on the 11 stop Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, Parsons was convinced that the best lineup of surfers of the year were raring to go in front of him.
“We have possibly the best lineup of surfers of the year so far,” said Parsons. “With all but one of the top 45 in the world making themselves available for the event we should see some excellent action when the event gets underway.”
Only Adrian Buchan (AUS) is absent from the top 45 draw due to injury and his place will be taken by 2000 Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour Champion, Sunny Garcia (ZAF).
Organisers will assess conditions at first light every morning.
All the action can be viewed on the LIVE webcast via www.billabongpro.com or www.aspworldtour.com
