Small surf has forced the third consecutive lay day for the Hurley Pro Trestles, with only inconsistent one-to-two foot (0.5 metre) surf on offer yesterday.

Event No. 6 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour, the Hurley Pro Trestles went on hold for most of the morning in hopes of a swell increase, but inconsistency, combined with the continued small size, prompted event organizers to call competition off for the day.

“The surf never approached a level where we were comfortable running today,” Perry Hatchett, ASP Head Judge, said. “We’ll competition tomorrow morning at 7am sharp and will finish by day’s end.”

Surfline, official foreer of the Hurley Pro Trestles, is calling for a moderate southwest energy to continue filling in over the next several days.

When competition resumes, up first will be former event winner Bede Durbdige (AUS), 26, up against compatriot Kai Otton (AUS), 29, in Heat 1 of Round 4.
