CANGGU, Bali/Indonesia (Monday, October 7, 2012) – There won’t be any surfing at the 2012 Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali today and tomorrow due to small surf and bad winds. There is a promising swell expected to hit on Wednesday so Contest Director Beau Emerton and Head Judge Glen Elliot have made the call to move the contest to Keramas and wait for the new swell.
“The surf is pretty bad at the moment and tomorrow’s forecast is looking the same,” Elliot said. “We’re going to move everything over to Keramas because the new swell is looking good for over there. The tides are good for early mornings so the next call will be Wednesday at 6am.”
The Oakley ASP World Junior Championships Bali will run from October 6 – 17. For LIVE webcast, event videos and more check www.oakleyprojunior.com.
