Oi, mate. No one got to enjoy the pro today as the The 2013 Quiksilver Pro got off to a rainy lay day on day one of the waiting period at Snapper Rocks. So the new ASP season has yet to officially start. Apparently, the waves just weren’t cooperating.

“Small surf in the one-to-three foot (0.5 metre) range and heavy rains have prompted us to call a lay day for competition today,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We have plenty of swell forecast for the window so we’ll wait until we have improved conditions before commencing the event. Next call tomorrow at 6:30am.”
