TEAHUPOO, Tahiti (Sunday, May 6th, 2007) – Event organizers at the Billabong Pro Tahiti have called another lay day today as a result of the continued small conditions.
"Today is Sunday and we're looking at similar conditions to yesterday – about 2 to 3 feet and very inconsistent," Acting ASP World Tour Head Judge Dave Shipley said. "We've called the competition off for today in hopes of something better coming later in the week. At present, it looks like we'll be getting some swell out of the south/southwest for the 11th through the 14th. It's not going to be the best size, but a much better direction. We will still convene each morning to assess the conditions for a possible start."
When action recommences, Round 2 of the Billabong Pro Tahiti will begin the man-on-man elimination heats with some of the premier names in the ASP Foster's 45 doing battle with local standouts.
