MARGARET RIVER, WA/Australia (Monday, March 18, 2013) - With near flat condition on day three of the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro contest officials have called a lay-day. Swell forecasts are tracking a significant swell that’s due to hit South West WA later in the week, but small surf has forced a day off today.
Stop No. 2 of 8 on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, the 2013 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro plays a vital role in deciding this year’s ASP Women’s World Champion.
The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro is also the first men’s ASP PRIME rated event for the 2013 season, offering maximum points towards 2014 ASP World Championship Tour qualification campaigns.
“There’s not a lot of swell on offer so we have called a lay-day today,” ASP Australasia General Manager Dane Jordan said. “The next couple of days aren’t looking too great, but there’s a nice swell on the horizon. We’re looking like finishing the event in great surf later in the week, but for now there will be no surfing at the event today.”
A call will be made at 6:30am for a possible 7am start to either men’s or women’s divisions tomorrow.
