Welcome to day one at BWA Ireland, scroll down for updates from all the action through the day…
18:00 – All fleets except for the pros have been released for the day. Next call for the pro fleet at 19:00, there’s still potential to run some heats for this fleet at Hells Gate again, so stay tuned!
16: 15 – No more competition to date, the judges have checked a variety of spots, but nothing is quite working well enough. They are keen to hold out as long as possible if there is any potential of competition. Next announcement will be at 18:00. Most people are currently hanging at Spillanes, catching up on some much needed sleep, checking emails or checking out their latest surf boards. Fingers crossed for better news at 18.00.
15:13 – Competition still on hold here in Ireland, the wind is blowing at Dumps but the waves are way too small to contemplate competition. At around 4pm the tide will be low enough again at Hells Gate, so there is potential to take the competition back to there.
14:20 – Judges are now at Dumps assessing the conditions, it doesn’t look great at the moment but potential for more competition to be held.
13:57 – More competition at Hells Gate is looking unlikely, with the conditions worsening. Potential for moving to dumps or shitties later in the day, but there are some storms and winds coming through, so we will have to see what this brings.
