LAGUNA, Santa Catarina/Brazil (Friday, June 25, 2010) - This Friday started with a strong south winds’ blowing, and as the surf fore looks good for the Santa Marta Cape for this weekend, the contest is still on hold and the next call was set for 7:30am tomorrow.
Two calls were made today by the Contest Officials trying to finish the second round, but along conditions that weren’t good enough, the local fisherman close the only possible beach to run those heats due to the approach of a large shoal of fish.
“Unhappily tide has gone too high and with the swell shifting to the south direction tomorrow, we decide to call a lay day for the South to South Santa Marta Pro. Projections say it’s going to get better during the weekend, with Sunday looking like the best day at Praia do Cardoso, the main site of this event, so we’ll be back tomorrow to asses conditions for a possible start a 7 30 am,” said Luli Pereira, the event’s Head Judge.
The organizers of the South to South Santa Marta Pro took advantage of the lay Day and readied a place inside a Camping Site for the competitors, staff members, press people, sponsors and invitees to watch the World Cup match among Brazil and Portugal. Everyone was stoked with the chance of watching the game in such a good atmosphere.
The quest for the best waves on the Santa Marta Cape restarts Saturday, with the first call set for 7 30 am at Cardoso Beach.
