13:38 – heat abandoned! proffitt had just landed a backloop in his heat with chambers, hart and Skye. Wind has dropped yet further, and is no longer suitable for competition.
13:26 – lewis scores a great backloop. Very light winds out to the back, but windier at the break. Both lewis and cox scoring some good waves. Lewis getting some nice backside turns on another decent section…
13:19 – heat two are up, lewis vs cox. With one to advance. Still two waves and one jump to count. Looking very tricky to continue with neither rider getting a wave so far.
13:10 – 2 waves 1 jump to count with Sam Neal vs Dave horrocks and Alfie hart vs john Skye. Looking very light, very few jumps to count. Hart and Skye advance. Heats are best of two, not man on man,
12:38 – Pro competition about to get underway at Hell’s Gate, conditions are looking light with guys heading out on 5.3 and 5.7s with big boards. Wind is cross onshore port tack, with the waves coming through in waist to head high sets.
11:30 – After an incredible competition in Wales competitors have made their way across to the west coast of Ireland overnight, and are now getting ready for a busy day on the water.
