PUERTO ESCONDIDO, Oaxaca/Mexico (Sunday, July 18, 2010) - Event organizers at the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 4-Star Quiksilver Pro Puerto Escondido have called competition off for today with smaller two-to-four foot (1 metre) surf on offer and a promising swell expected to ignite the Mexican Pipeline’s deadly beachbreak by as early as tomorrow.
The Quiksilver Pro Puerto Escondido’s 10 day waiting period gives event organizers the leeway to send out the impressive field of talent seeded in the ASP 4-Star event in optimal Puerto Escondido conditions.
“The surf is smaller and inconsistent today, so we’re calling the contest off,” Jeff Klugel, ASP North America Head Judge said. “We’re expecting a new swell to start filling in by tomorrow, so it’s best not to run today in these small conditions.”
The top seeded surfers will hit the water in the Round of 64 when competition resumes.
The Quiksilver Pro Puerto Escondido holds a waiting period from July 16 through 23, 2010 and is web LIVE via www.quiksilver.com/puerto
