Movistar Peru Classic Back ON for Rounds 2 and 3

slperur109rowlandbigLOBITOS, Piura/Peru (Saturday, November 7, 2009) – Clean two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves are on offer this morning, and with a projection for building swell throughout the day, the Movistar Peru Classic presented by Rip Curl has been called back on, with Round 2 commencing at 8am.

Event No. 5 of 7 on the 2009 ASP Women’s World Tour, the Movistar Peru Classic saw the top seeds dominate Round 1 of competition two days ago, and today’s improved conditions are poised to provide the ideal setting for the world’s best female surfers to do battle.

“As forecast, a slight increase in swell has arrived so we will commence Round 2 at 8am,” Richie Porta, ASP Women’s World Tour Head Judge, said. “We plan on moving straight into Round 3 and if the swell continues to increase throughout the day, we will hold the Quarterfinals.”

Up first this morning is Melanie Bartels (HAW), 27, Megan Abubo (HAW), 31, and Nadja DeCol (PER), 19, in Round 1 of the elimination Round 2.
