DRILL HALL BEACH, Barbados (Wednesday, April 12, 2017) – After a history-making day in Barbados, the World Surf League (WSL) Barbados Surf Pro Qualifying Series (QS) 3,000 has been called back ON for men’s Round Two. More swell is in the water and another big day of competition has taken shape for everyone involved. North America Tour Manager, Brian Robbins, and event organizers made the call right away when checking conditions this morning.
“Yesterday was a great day and already put us into a good place for the rest of the event so we’re hoping for more of the same today,” Robbins said. “We’ll start with men’s Round Two and keep Round Three, as well as women’s Round Three, on standby to reassess conditions for a call. We’re looking forward to another great day of competition and we have waves on offer so it should be a good one.”
A stacked heat kicks off men’s Round Two with Tanner Hendrickson (HAW) up against French threat Medi Veminardi (FRA) and yesterday’s standouts Peterson Cristanto (BRA) and current North America No. 1 ranked Jordy Collins (USA).
A big Round Two, Heat 9 matchup awaits last year’s Costa Rica Surf Open QS3,000 runner-up Olamana Eleogram (HAW) set to battle QS heavyweight Brian Toth (PRI), yesterday’s top performer Cole Houshmand (USA) and Barbados’ own Daniel Edghill (BRB).
Parker Coffin (USA), Noah Schweizer (USA), Seth Moniz (HAW), Taylor Clark (USA), and Jorgann Couzinet (FRA) are also set to make their debuts today alongside local wildcard Dane Mackie (BRB).
