Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, Brazil
Organisers of the Nova Schin Festival presented by Billabong have once again placed the event on hold for the day (Thusday, 3 November) as swell conditions at Joaquina and the surrounding coastline have dropped dramatically overnight.
With four heats in round one still to be completed, organisers of the 10th event on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour will make decision at 5pm this afternoon regarding moving the event back down the coast (about two hours drive) to Imbituba tomorrow, the location where the first 12 heats were completed.
With the waiting period extending through to Wednesday 9 November, and with the event only needing approximately three and a half days for it to be completed, organisers will wait for optimum conditions before sending out competitors.
The remaining heats of round one include:
Daniel Wills (AUS) vs Luke Stedman (AUS) vs Tom Curren (USA)
Fred Patacchia (HAW) vs Greg Emslie (ZAF) vs Bernado Pigmeu (BRA)
Tom Whitaker (AUS) vs Raoni Monteiro (BRA) vs Guilherme Herdy (BRA)
Peterson Rosa (BRA) vs Kirk Flintoff (AUS) vs Renan Rocha (BRA)
