DATE CHANGE ADVISORY
X Games 11 Surfing Competition To Be Held Tuesday, August 2
Initially scheduled to be held on August 1, the X Games Surfing competition will be held on Tuesday, August 2 in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. X Games sport organizers made the decision to wait until Tuesday, as the forecast calls for swells to increase Tuesday morning. The competition is slated to commence at 7 a.m. local time (Central Time).
Announced in early June, X Games 11 Surfing moved to Puerto Escondido from its previous home in Huntington Beach, Calif. where it was held for the past two years. Puerto Escondido is famous for the big powerful waves of Zicatela Beach.
The X Games 11 Surfing competition will air on Saturday, August 6 during the 3 p.m. ET ABC telecast. It will also air on ESPN Deportes at 1 p.m. ET.
