Conditions had eased slightly from yesterday allowing the competition to use its mobile format and head to the more exposed beach of Lighthouse.
That's not to say that conditions were by any means easy. This is the O'Neill Cold Water Classic Series after all, and the surfers were battling through 3meter swell with strong winds, to find some of the choice waves on offer.
However, the forecast shows that things are only going to get better. And possibly a lot better at that. "It is showing that everything is gradually easing from here," said contest director, Matt Wilson. "And it's also showing some rare winds coming in so I am taking advice from locals around here because there is the possibility they could make for some favourable conditions."
The next call will be made tomorrow March 25, 2010 at 7.30am to start with Heat 7 in the round of 96
