HONOLUA BAY, Maui, Hawaii/USA (Sunday, December 6, 2020) – The first of two back-to-back northwest swells has missed the mark at Honolua Bay, resulting in nearly flat conditions and a third lay day being called today for the first stop of the women’s 2021 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), the Maui Pro presented by ROXY. There is optimism amongst organizers that the second, larger northwest swell will allow the competition to start on Monday, with the call happening earlier in the morning.
“Today is a bit of tricky one actually. We’ve been waiting for this swell to show up and it’s not on any of the buoys, so we’re going to be off for today,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Vice President of Tours and Competition. “We’re actually going to do an earlier call for tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. HST, looking to run as much as we can tomorrow and hoping that the swell fills in. For tomorrow there’s half of a chance that we can even do one or two of the Quarterfinals, depending on how good the swell is.”
The Maui Pro presented by ROXY is open through Dec. 15, 2020. The competition will be broadcast LIVE on WorldSurfLeague.com and the free WSL app. Also, check local listings for coverage from the WSL’s broadcast partners. The competition will be carried locally in Hawaii by the Spectrum Surf Channel.
