Second Lay Day For KSP World Tour Finals On Maui
Kahului, Hawaii – November 30, 2012: Another official lay day was called due to continued light and variable winds. Advisory level swells greeted competitors at Ho’okipa Beach Park this morning, but contest directors deemed wind conditions to be uncontestable today.
“Anything can happen”, said KSP Head Judge Brad Price during this morning’s live broadcast. “Starting Tuesday there’s an outside chance we’ll have wind. But, Thursday for sure, Friday for sure. So we’ll have to see how it goes.”
The next call will be at 9AM tomorrow morning following an assessment of conditions. Tune in live on www.kspworldtour.com/live tomorrow for the morning show and a first possible start of Men's Round 1.
