Dawn Patrol: Mel on Big Wave Call, Top Scores from J-Bay

The heavyweight matchups in Round 4 have been delayed another day as small conditions forced a third consecutive lay dat at the J-Bay Open. But good news is coming from Surfline, the official forecaster for the World Surf League (WSL). Not only will Jeffreys likely see overhead sets on Finals Day, a new South Pacific swell has allowed Big Wave Tour (BWT) organizers to put the Billabong Pico Alto on Yellow Alert.

On Day 10 of Dawn Patrol, BWT commissioner Peter Mel looks at the forecasts for both Pico Alto and Jeffreys as well as the biggest rides of the J-Bay Open through Round 3.
