Kolohe Andino (USA), 19, will surf against Julian Wilson (AUS), 24, in Heat 10 Round 3 of the Volcom Fiji Pro.
RESTAURANTS, Tavarua/Fiji (Friday, June 7, 2013) - After calling Volcom Fiji Pro competition on this morning, onshore winds and quickly deteriorating conditions have forced event officials to put competition on hold this morning, with the next call scheduled for 1aam local time.
Stop No. 4 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Volcom Fiji Pro enjoyed an unforgettable day of perfect waves at Restaurants yesterday, completing Round 2 and the opening heats of Round 3. Event organizers returned to similar conditions this morning, but a change in conditions over the last few hours have placed competition on hold.
“We arrived to immaculate waves at Restaurants again this morning, but things have changed,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge said. “The winds are making things pretty messy at the moment and we’re going to place competition on hold to monitor conditions to see if things clean up. Next call is 11am.”
Up first will be Jeremy Flores (FRA), 25, against Miguel Pupo (BRA), 21, in Heat 4 Round 3 when Volcom Fiji Pro competition resumes.
