Another lay day has been called for the Billabong Pro Mundaka with little swell on offer this morning and swamping high tides.

Event No. 8 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour, the Billabong Pro Mundaka completed the opening eight heats of Round 1, opting to run the man-on-man elimination format. While the past two days seen the event run, developing swell on the horizon is looking promising for a recommencement in the next couple of days.

“Obviously we’re off today with little-to-no surf today,” Mike Parsons, Billabong Pro Mundaka Contest Director, said. “We’re looking at a possible bump tomorrow afternoon, looking better on Friday. We’re also monitoring a better-looking swell set to arrive for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We’ll be back tomorrow to have another look though.”

Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 9am to assess conditions for a possible recommencement.
