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