MUNDAKA, Spain (Tuesday, October 3, 2006) Despite conditions looking slightly grey and unattractive this morning, contest director Mike Parsons has made the call to restart the Billabong Pro Mundaka where it left off yeserday at round one heat three.
Despite there being heavy skies, quality waves are pushing through the contest arena at around one to 1.5 metres (three to five feet) and surfers will enjoy the lengthy walls on offer.
Heats will be 30 minutes in duration and it is likely that at least two to three or more will be run before the high tide sweeps in and flatten things out like yesterday.
The event will restart with round one heat three containing Bobby Martinez (USA), Adriano de Souza (BRA) and Mikael Picon (FRA).
The winners of the first round heats go straight through to round three while second and third place getters move to round two.
