October 21, 2003 (Mundaka, Basque Country) The Billabong Pro Mundaka relocated this morning for a possible 9am (local time) start. Competitors in remaining round one heats of the US$250,000 World Championship Tournament (WCT) are up first, with round two following if conditions allow.
Small 2ft (0.5m) waves were on offer this morning at Mundaka, with bigger 3-4 ft (1.3m) surf expected at Bakio.
Due to the lack of phone lines and infrastructure at Bakio, no update will be available until the end of surfing action today.
The Billabong Pro Mundaka is co-sponsored by Fosters, Vans and Von Zipper and supported by Telefonica, BBK, the “Diputacion de Bizkaia”, the “Gobierno Vasco”, the city of Mundaka, the Mundaka Surf Taldea and EHSF (Federation of Surfing).
