SriLankan Airlines Pro at Arugam Bay set to begin tomorrow with Sri Lankan wild-cards decided

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 June, 2010 : – – DayA? one of the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 6-star ratedA? SriLankan Airlines Pro at Arugam Bay was officially placed on-hold as contest organizers await an expected good pulse in swell tomorrow to begin the first ever ASP event in Sri Lanka.

The consistent 1m (3 to 4 feet) clean surf that greeted the opening day was certainly good for surfing but with bigger waves forecast in the coming days along with an extremely favourable forecast for surf in the coming week organizers are keen to run the event in the very best and biggest surf and expect to be off and running first thing tomorrow morning.

a??Ita??s very contestable out there today but both myself and ASP Head Judge Richie Porta agree that with better waves likely tomorrow wea??re keen to begin this special event on a real higha?? said contest director Dane Jordan.

a??Ita??s also a great opportunity for us to run the trials final this morning and then let all the competitors really free surf the waves today and further familiarize themselves with theA? point break here and be primed for an excellent start.a??

An opening ceremony was enjoyed by all surfers at the famous point this morning and shortly after eight of Sri Lankaa??s finest surfers competed for two prized wild-card positions into the event. The standard of the Sri Lankan boys surprised many of the media and officials at this event but not head judge Richard Porta who has visited the break on a number of occasions over the past 18 months.

a?? Our international panel of ASP judgesA? judged their final today and there were some legitimate 6 point rides in the mix of scores so that gives you an idea that they know how to perform a?? tomorrows heats will be exciting for alla?? added Porta.

Local restaurateur Asanka along with fellow Arugam Bay surfer MilanA? were the winners of the two sponsored wild-cards into the event while a number of other Sri Lankan surfers have taken positions into round one heats.

The free surfing performances have been spectacular and the wave looks to be living up to ita??s reputation as a superb performance break. All is ready to begin, internet facilities are in-place and we expect to beam out a super quality webcast from this tropical paradise remote location.
