Roxy Pro France

Swell Filling in at Les Estagnots

With only small surf on offer at the primary site of Les Estagnots, event organizers for the Roxy Pro France have called a lay day for competition. A projected increase in swell overnight could see the world's best female surfers kick off the event as early as the second day of the waiting period.

“As expected, the surf has dropped since yesterday and we've called a lay day for competition,” said ASP Women's Commissioner Jessi Miley-Dyer. “We expect a new system to fill in overnight and through the next several days so we anticipate a probable commencement tomorrow morning.”
