Le Morne, Mauritius – September 11, 2012: The One Eye Kite Surf Pro Mauritius has been called off for the day due to small waves and inconsistent sets as the primary reason.
“The swell is still taking a bit of a break out here at One Eye and so are the riders and event officials.” says Kristin Boese, tour manager and president of the KSP world championship tour. “We are not worried though and forecasts promise great conditions for the final three heats of the event as well as a couple of supersession’s that we are planning for later this week.”
Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 10:00am to assess conditions for a possible 10:30am start.
When competition resumes, up first will be the men’s 3rd place final featuring Sebastian Ribeiro (BRA) and Luke McGillewie (RRD, RSA).
Highlights from the One Eye Kite Surf Pro are available here.
