There is potential for further extension from the current three-year license agreement.
“Our partnership with Volcom has grown over the last several years from their support of our athletes to the sponsoring of the ASP 5-Star Pipe event and now as a licensee for an ASP World Title event,” Brodie Carr, ASP Intl CEO, said.
This is many of the Tours favorite wave in the world including Slater. Be sure to check it out on OC 250 too.
The forecast is excellent for a go on day one of the holding period! with an 8+' local scale SSW; the episode easing into the new week but likely remaining more than contestable into the finish.
Fiji is 22 hours ahead of Hawaii.
