Strong offshore wind pushed away any swell remnants on Day 2

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 April, 2017 - Plage Nord, Biscarrosse, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France - After a successful opening day at the Junior Pro Biscarrosse, the lack of contestable waves forced competition directors to call the event off for the day.

“We had to come this morning not to miss any opportunity to go through some heats”, said local consultant Cyril Blanckaert, from Lou Bisca Surf Club. “We put all our chances on our side and were hoping to see something for the girls with the coming tide this afternoon. Unfortunately, the strong offshore wind pushed away any hope we had today. Judges, Lou Bisca Surf Club’s crew and the athletes were ready, but we finally called the event OFF at 4 p.m.”

Sunday will be crucial as a new swell pushes in alongside a storm front. The last remaining day , Monday, May 1st is looking extremely stormy as well, prompting organizers to try to complete the event before then. A full day of competition running double banks is anticipated for Sunday.

Surfers and event officials will then reconvene at 7 a.m Sunday to reassess conditions and hopefully launch a full day of action.
