Green light for Tweed Coast Pro
If you've been reading our Northern NSW Forecast Notes you'd be well on top of the forthcoming run of swell in that region.
Well, the Woz is on top of it too, they've (finally) called a green light for the Tweed Coast Pro at Cabarita, and they've chosen this coming Sunday and Monday as the running days. Let's go to the press release!
“We have been tracking this swell for a week now and the forecast has been constantly changing every day,” said WSL's Tweed Coast Pro Contest Director Renato Hickel. “Although it’s been changing in size and direction it has stayed relatively true for this coming weekend and indicates we should have what we need to run a successful, exciting and entertaining event."
At this point it's not clear what format the competition will use, but there are 11 surfers each in the men's and women's draw plus a yet-to-be-decided local wildcard. There'll also be local expression sessions.
The heat draws for Day One are:
Heat 1: Isabella Nichols, Macy Callaghan, Philippa Anderson
Heat 2: Stephanie Gilmore, Zahli Kelly, Tweed Coast Wildcard (TBC)
Heat 3: Sally Fitzgibbons, Tyler Wright, Molly Picklum
Heat 4: Nikki van Dijk, Keely Andrew, Holly Wawn
Tweed Coast Pro Men's Round 1 Matchups:
Heat 1: Wade Carmichael, Adrian Buchan, Conor O'Leary
Heat 2: Owen Wright, Ethan Ewing, Tweed Coast Wildcard (TBC)
