Surf comp awaits cyclone swell

AFTER four awesome days of non-stop surfing action at Snapper Rocks for the ASP Tour opener, the Quiksilver (men's) and Roxy (women's) Pro has been on hold since Wednesday in anticipation of the next swell not due until Saturday.

>> Latest sport news

Next week's swell forecast is looking more promising midweek and we are due for a cyclone swell.

It will take only one day to run off both the men's and women's event and crown the respective champions.

It's down to the semis for the girls and quarter finals for the guys.

There's also a legends heat will be thrown in the middle - those competing are our very own Cooly Kid and former world champion "Rabbit" Bartholomew, now 56, and another two former titleholders in Tom Carroll and Martin Potter.
