Dawn Patrol: Oi Rio Pro Lay Day, Solid Surf Predicted

Championship Tour (CT) Commissioner Kieren Perrow called competition off for the first day of the event window for the Oi Rio Pro and Oi Rio Women's Pro.

"Small conditions today but we anticipate the swell to fill in over the next few days," he said. "The banks look good so once we have some swell on them, we should see some great surfing. We'll be back tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. to reassess conditions."

According to Surfline, the next few days should see bigger waves at Barra da Tijuca:
Overview: Rising S becoming SSE swell for Tuesday and into Wednesday with solid surf expected midweek. Winds are unfavorable Tuesday and dicey Wednesday. Gradually fading SSE becoming SE swell with more favorable conditions expected for Thursday/Friday and into the weekend. Read the latest forecast.
