A lay day has been called for the World Surf League (WSL) Barbados Surf Pro Qualifying Series (QS) 3,000. After three days of consistent swell, conditions have slowed too much for competition to be called on and will have its next call at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, April 15.
“We’re not seeing enough waves like we have been the last few days to call it on today so both men and women will be off,” an organizer said. “The good news is that waves are still showing promise through the weekend with good direction and consistency. We’ll come back tomorrow morning and make another call to hopefully get men or women’s Round Four in the water.”
When action resumes, Peterson Crisanto (BRA), Victor Bernardo (BRA), Santiago Muniz (ARG) and Hiroto Arai (JPN) will be the first in the water for men’s Round Four.
On the women’s side, former Championship Tour (CT) competitor Alesa Quizon (HAW), Brittany Penaroza (HAW), Mikaela Greene (AUS) and Caroline Marks (USA) will battle for two spots into Round Five.
