Surfing - Wait continues at Reef Hawaiian Pro

A fifth consecutive lay day was called at the Reef Hawaiian Pro with small waves continuing to delay the action at Haleiwa.

Organisers decided to wait once again as "minimal surf prevails at Haleiwa through Thursday... with a small North swell wrapping in to help the surf pick up slightly from the past couple days". However the waves are still in the one-to-two-foot category.

The swell is expected to build towards the end of the week, allowing the competition to resume on Saturday, the final day of its 13-day window.

The event on the North Shore of the island has seen action on just three days so far. Only two of eight round-of-32 heats have been completed.

The likes of Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Bede Durbridge, Gabriel Medina and Jeremy Flores are all still in the competition.

The Reef Hawaiian Pro offers £623,000 in prize money this year, including a bonus of over £60,000, a Harley Davidson motorcycle and a custom Nixon watch for the overall series champion.
