HOSSEGOR, France (Sunday, Sept. 23, 2007) – Four to six foot (two metre), offshore conditions at La Graviere have prompted Quiksilver Pro France officials to call competition on today. The remainder of Round 1 will be completed, and should conditions hold, Round 2 could be started as well.
“If we wrap up the 16th heat of Round 1 today, it is more than likely that we will go straight into Round 2,” Contest Director Rod Brooks said. “The reason for that is that we are expecting onshore winds from midday tomorrow, and onshore, variable winds for the rest of the week. It’s quite possible the next two days will boast the best surf of the event window.”
Heat 5 of Round 1 will paddle out at 10am today. The resurf between Bede Durbidge (AUS), Cory Lopez (USA) and Gabe Kling (USA) will be followed by heavy hitting heats featuring Taj Burrow (AUS) in Heat 7, Kelly Slater (USA) in Heat 8, Mick Fanning (AUS) in Heat 9 and Andy Irons (HAW) in Heat 10.
