Competition has been called off at the World Surf League’s season-opening event in Hawaii for a third consecutive day.
World’s best surfers again frustrated in Hawaii
The wait goes on for the world’s leading surfers at the season-opening event in Hawaii, with competition called off for a third consecutive day.
Six Australian women – spearheaded by defending world champion Stephanie Gilmore – and seven Aussie men led by world No.3 Jack Robinson are on Oahu to take part in the World Surf League (WSL) championship tour’s 2023 curtain-raiser the Billabong Pro.
Having lost the first two days to poor conditions, organisers were on Tuesday again forced to pull the plug on competition.
They remain confident surfers will be able to take to the water on Wednesday morning local time.
