LA GRAVIERE, Hossegor/France (Saturday, September 29, 2012) – Event organizers at the Quiksilver Pro France have called competition off for the day with minimal swell on offer at the primary site of La Graviere.
Event No. 7 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France completed the opening nine of 12 Round 1 heats yesterday morning before calling competition off when the swell dropped.
“Not too much in the way of waves out there this morning so we have called competition off for the day,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We anticipate a good-looking swell in the coming days and will be back tomorrow to assess the conditions then.”
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 8:30am to assess conditions for a possible 9am start.
