Yellow Alert forces cancellation of Surf De Nuit
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 August, 2015 - Chambre d'amour, Anglet - The city of Anglet and the World Surf League have been forced to cancel the 2015 edition of the YNTHT Surf De Nuit pres. by SoWest Cola.
Meteo France, the French national weather forecaster has declared a Yellow Alert for big swells and strong wind gusts today, forcing event organizers in Anglet to call OFF competition at the Surf de Nuit and cancel the 2015 edition.
“It’s with immense regrets that we had to call OFF the YNTHT Surf De Nuit pres. by SoWest Cola. Weather conditions today feel November-like and we couldn’t possibly host the event in a safe environment for both the competitors and the public,” declared Guillaume Cazet, Tourism Office of Anglet representative.
“We’re deeply sorry for our partners with whom we’ve had the pleasure to work with: Philips, SoWest Cola but also everyone else who made possible for Franck Perez to shape the incredible lumiboards like AtuaCores and FCS II.” Cazet continued.
“We would also like to thank the Shaperoom and Label Sphere for their work in the event village and artists area, as well as our media partners Elow, Virgin Radio and Surf Session. Finally we’d like to thank the World Surf League for their interest in our event and the potential international exposure we could have got if the conditions played nice. It’s bad luck this time but we’ll be back next year !”
