Three-to-four foot, inconsistent surf forces Lay Day
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 June, 2015 - Tavarua - Inconsistent three-to-four foot surf has prompted event organizers to call a lay day for the Fiji Women’s Pro today. Stop No. 5 on the 2015 Samsung Galaxy WSL Championship Tour is off for the day after an exciting day of competition yesterday.
“The swell has dropped a lot so we are off for the day,” Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Women’s Commissioner, said. “I think there's a lot of swell coming and so we're going to wait for something better.”
Eight of the world's best female surfers will fight for the the remaining four places in the Quarterfinals when competition resumes with Round 4. First to compete will be Laura Enever (AUS) taking on Coco Ho (HAW) in Heat 1.
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning to assess conditions and make the next call.
Surfline, official forecaster for the WSL CT, are calling for: SW groundswell eases Wednesday, holding the most size in the morning. Light diurnal winds. Strengthening Tasman low develops solid SW swell for late week. Winds remain favorable through Friday morning. Watching the potential return of stronger SE/SSE flow for Friday afternoon.
