2 September, 2019 – Canggu, Bali: The Bali Adaptive Pro presented by Burton Automotive was put on hold for the day after watching the unruly 4-5 foot plus bombing sets smashing into the Echo Beach reef for a couple of hours with no measurable improvement in wave quality, so essentially the contest venue was unusable for all divisions of competitors.
The organizers and contest directors did have a look at Old Mans, just a few hundred meters south, to determine if it was useable, and although it was better it was still not looking like an easy go by any measure. So the decision was made to call the contest off for the day and come back tomorrow early as the swell is predicted to decrease overnight.
If the conditions allow, the event will continue and conclude at Echo Beach, but there is the chance that the early morning session will be held at Old Mans during the low tide, then the event will move back to Echo Beach when the tide gets past the midpoint.
Either way, tomorrow will see the conclusion of the Bali Adaptive Pro presented by Burton Automotive, completed by an award presentation and party at Sunny Café in Berawa.
So please come to Echo Beach tomorrow to see the exciting finale of this history making event and cheer on these amazing surfers.
Competitors and crew have been asked to standby at 6:30 am tomorrow, and prepare for a 7:00 am start.
