Event organizers at the 2008 Rip Curl Pro presented by Snickers have called competition off for the day, allowing the ASP Top 45 another day to prepare for battle at Bells Beach.


Event No. 2 of 11 on the 2008 ASP World Tour, the Rip Curl Pro boasts a waiting period that begins today, Mar. 18, 2008 and runs through Mar. 29, 2008.  Event organizers monitored the increasing swell on offer throughout the morning, but inconsistent competition prompted them to call competition off for the afternoon.


Running in conjunction with the Rip Curl Pro will be event No. 2 of 8 on the 2008 ASP Women’s World Tour, the Rip Curl Women’s Pro presented by Ford Fiesta.  The Rip Curl Women’s Pro begins its waiting period tomorrow, Wednesday, Mar. 19, 2008 and runs through Mar. 24, 2008.


Both the Rip Curl Pro pres. by Snickers and the Rip Curl Women’s Pro pres. by Ford Fiesta will be webcast LIVE . Another call on competition status will be made tomorrow at 7:30am.
