Huey certainly served up the swell for the March Open showdown, but southerly winds and straight lines meant another no-go.
The record shows it’s the first time in five years that two months have passed without a start to the Open season.
It’s not as if surfers are not ready to go. Windy Point turned on screamers, and plenty of Shoes members were in the thick of it. Especially Nathan Hatheier – who saw his favourite board shattered into three pieces, courtesy of a mean inside section!
And so it’s on to 6-7 April for the next world title battle on the Reef.
Oh well, at least the Super Groms and Juniors have some points on the board.
In the meantime, keep the faith – and support our wonderful sponsors –
