Vieux Boucau Longboard Festival
Plage Nord, Vieux Boucau, France
11 - 12 September 2014

Lay day called for festival, next call 13 September, 2014 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 September, 2014 - The ASP Europe 1-Star Men & Women Vieux Boucau Longboard Festival has suffered a second consecutive layday due to the lack of waves on offer at Plage Nord of Vieux Boucau. The new expected 2-to-3-foot swell did not reach the coastline in time for today’s competition forcing event officials to differ the start to Saturday, 9am if conditions allow it.

“We monitored the conditions all-day,” Thierry Vidal, head judge stated. “Unfortunately the new swell we’re waiting for hasn’t show signs today and we’ll have to postpone again to tomorrow. We’re confident we can run the whole event in a day and will be looking to start bright and early tomorrow.”

Surfers and event officials will reconvene Saturday at 9am to reassess conditions.

The Vieux Boucau Longboard Festival is organized by the Vieux Boucau Surf Club with the support of the following event partners:  Conseil général des landes, Communauté de communes Macs, la ville de Vieux Boucau et son office de tourisme, la fédération française de surf, le comité régional d'Aquitaine de surf, le comité des Landes de surf, la Maison de l’Espadrille, SurfSession, Surf FM, and XL Mag amongst other.
