Men's Quarters and Women's Semis to continue when comp resumes
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 September, 2015 - San Clemente - After a day of high drama yesterday at the Hurley Pro and Swatch Women's Pro, stops No. 8 and 7 respectively on the Samsung Galaxy World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), competition at Lower Trestles has been called OFF for the day.
"There are some fun waves out there but we can't run today because the event permit only allows us to hold competition on one of the weekend days," said WSL Commissioner Kieren Perrow. "We picked yesterday, which was the better day of surf, so we can't run any competition today.
"The swell is a little bit less powerful and it's lost some of the that energy this morning. We're hopeful that we'll get something better than this and will keep a close eye on the forecast".
When competition resumes, up first will be either Joel Parkinson (AUS) against Filipe Toledo (BRA) in the Men's Quarterfinals or Bianca Buitendag (ZAF) taking on Lakey Peterson (USA) in the Women's Semifinals.
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow at 7 a.m. local time to assess conditions and make a call for competition.
Surfline, official forecaster for the World Surf League, are calling for: Southerly swell mix will continue to slowly trend down Sunday through early next week, although still offering fun size surf. A fun, new SW swell will build in for the end of the upcoming week.
