2000 RUSTY XCEL PRO – Postponed For Surf.

Rusty/XCEL Pro postponed todaylarge swell looms on the horizon

Sunset Beach, Oahu, HAWAII (November 2, 2000) – The Rusty/XCEL Pro is postponed for today. Surfers and organizers are watching the forecast as several swells loom on the horizon going into the weekend.

Two separate sources are forecasting a swell due this Friday and Saturday in the 3′ to 4′ range. Another 6’swell is expected on Monday through Tuesday followed by a bigger swell pushing 10 to 15′ plus surf over Wednesday and Thursday next week. Surf in this size would prove the the Rusty/XCEL Pro to be a true “power surfing” event.

The Blue Torch Television crew is here in town to catch it all. With the North Shore bustling with the worldâà''¬à'"¢s best surfers, and large surf on the way, Blue Torch will be shooting lifestyle and free surfing until competition begins in the Rusty/XCEL Pro. During the event, Blue Torch T.V. will focus on shooting heats and conducting in depth interviews, promoting many of the local Hawaii surfers as well as national and international talent.

Blue Torch Television airs on the West Coast and in Hawaii. See future releases for details on scheduled airing times for the Rusty/XCEL Pro and the Hawaii segment.

Surfers and spectators can call 596-SURF (596-7873) for daily updates and status on the event.
