The Hainan Classic, a men's Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 4-Star Qualifying Series (QS) event has been called off for the day due to near flat conditions. The event is likely to finish tomorrow with contest officials eyeing an increase in swell by event partners Surfline. The third annual Hainan Wanning Riyue Bay International Surfing Festival combines both ASP and International Surfing Association (ISA) events offering the athletes the chance to compete for national pride and personal QS rankings points plus valuable prize money.
â€œWe've put the event on standby today due to nearly un-surfable conditions,â€ said ASP Australasia General Manager Dane Jordan. â€œThere's an increase in surf on the charts tomorrow and we've only got eight more heats to run before crowning a champion, we'll make a call at 6:30 am for a possible 7 o'clock start.â€
The ASP 4-Star Hainan Classic will run from November 25 - 28. More information HainanInternationalSurfingFestival.com/hainan-classic
