HONOLUA BAY, Maui/Hawaii (Friday, December 1, 2017) – The Maui Women’s Pro, the final event of the 2017 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), will come to an exciting conclusion today. The event has been called ON at Honolua Bay with four foot (1.2 metre) sets on offer starting at 8 a.m. local time with the Semifinals followed by the Final.
“We’ve got some leftover swell from yesterday so we are on,” said WSL Deputy Commissioner, Jessi Miley-Dyer. “Things are a bit slower today because the swell is dropping but there’s still some great waves and we’ll be crowning an event champion today.”
Newly crowned WSL Champion and defending event winner Tyler Wright (AUS) will take on 6X World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) in Semifinal 1 and Malia Manuel (HAW) and Bronte Macaulay (AUS) will match up in Semifinal 2.
Surfline, official forecaster for the Maui Women’s Pro, are calling for:
Good size NW to NNW swell prevails Friday, trending down through the day. Fading surf is expected over the weekend, with just small, shadowed NW swell on Monday. Confidence is slowly increasing that we’ll see another round of fairly solid NW to NNW swell Tue-Wed, although local wind may deteriorate.
The event will be broadcast LIVE via WorldSurfLeague.com, the WSL app and on Facebook LIVE via the WSL’s Facebook page. Also check local listings for coverage on CBS Sports Network in the U.S., Fox Sports in Australia, ESPN in Brazil, Sky NZ in New Zealand, SFR Sports in France and Portugal, Sport TV in Portugal and the EDGEsport Network.
