Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 February, 2018 - Merewether - A lay-day has been called at The 2018 Burton Automotive Pro on Day 2 of competition. Strong on-shore winds and rough seas meant that after one heat of Women's Round 1, the competition went on hold and was later called off for the day with conditions deteriorating further.

Event directors will reconvene at Merewether on Wednesday to make another call with competition likely to kick off a 7:00 am AEDT. 

The Burton Automotive Pro and Grandstand Sports Clinic Women’s Pro will run in conjunction with Newcastle Surfest from February 19 – 26.
