HONOLUA BAY, Maui/Hawaii (Monday, November 30, 2015) – Following an incredible day of surfing at Honolua Bay, event organizers were prompted to call a lay day at the Target Maui Pro as they await an expected rise in swell throughout the week. After waiting for eight days, the world’s best got a taste of what the bay can deliver and will now wait for even bigger conditions forecasted.
“We came back today expecting it to drop off and it has pretty drastically from yesterday’s phenomenal waves so we’ve called it off,” WSL Women’s Commissioner Jessi-Miley Dyer said. “The middle of the week looks like another great swell, maybe even better than what we got, will be making its way here so we’re all looking forward to see what’s in store. We want to see the World Title race end in fantastic fashion and know that the bay still has more to offer.”
Lakey Peterson (USA) and Tatiana Weston-Webb (HAW) will battle for elimination in the opening heat of Round 4 when competition resumes.
Surfline, the official forecaster for the World Surf League (WSL), are calling for:
New, long period NW swell will be on the rise through the afternoon on Saturday and peak on Sunday before easing on Monday. It looks like a slightly smaller, but still contestable, NW swell will move in for the 2nd-3rd.
The Target Maui Pro webcast is LIVE on www.worldsurfleague.com and via the WSL app.
The world’s best surfing will also be broadcast LIVE on Fox Sports in Australia, MCS Extreme in France, EDGE Sports in China, South Korea, Malaysia and other territories and on Globo TV in Brazil.
