SNAPPER ROCKS, Queensland/Australia (Sunday, February 27, 2011) – Event organizers at the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast have called competition off for the day with only small one-to-two foot (0.5 metre) waves on offer at the primary venue of Snapper Rocks.
“There’s not much on offer out there today so we’ve called competition off,” Rich Porta, ASP Head Judge, said. “We were fortunate to get a full day of competition in yesterday. There’s not much forecast but we’ll be back tomorrow morning to assess conditions for a possible start.”
While official competition has been called off for the day, the Corona Expression Session will take place at 10am at Snapper Rocks.
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 6:30am to assess conditions for a possible 7:30am start.
When competition resumes, up first will be Bede Durbidge (AUS), 28, up against wildcard Matt Banting (AUS), 16, in the opening men’s heat of Round 2 and Rebecca Woods (AUS), 26, battling Courtney Conlogue (AUS), 18, in the opening women’s heat of Round 2.
