Stop No. 8 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, the Rip Curl Pro Portugal plays a crucial role in both the hunt for the 2012 ASP World Title and the requalification campaigns of the world’s best surfers. Event organizers will wait for better conditions before recommencing competition.
“As projected, we have stormy conditions out there today and have called competition off for the day,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We anticipate improving conditions over the next few days and will return tomorrow morning to make another call.”
