CÔTE DES BASQUES, Biarritz – France (Thursday, July 11, 2013) – Surf conditions haven’t improved today in Biarritz forcing the organizers to call competition off for the second day in a row. An anticyclonic system sitting right in front of the European Atlantic coastline is blocking all chances of a swell making its way to the beautiful city of Biarritz and waves in the 0.5Ft only are breaking at Côte des Basques this morning.
“There’ll be another call tomorrow morning at 11am,” ASP Women’s Tour Manager, Jessi Miley-Dyer stated. “If conditions are still like this we’re looking at doing an international tag team with the girls, which should be really fun with this incredible weather for them and also for the public of Côte des Basques.”
Despite no competition being ran at the iconic birthplace of European surfing so far, Roxy is making everyone’s day at the beach really entertaining with fitness lessons, stand-up paddle initiations and other fun activities on the event’s village.
Event organizers will reconvene at 11am tomorrow to re-assess conditions.
