We get our 1st extension ever for the final day of COMP. Plus, last update: The REEF HAWAIIAN PRO

 Contest director Marty Thomas, director of the Vans Triple Crown has pulled off a 1st ever 'one day' extension for The Reef Hawaiian Pro. The new 'downgraded-delayed' 2-4+' NNW wont fill in enough on Saturday to finish a full day of competition. So they'll have to go on Sunday, the 1st day of the holding period for the Vans World Cup at Sunset. The forecast looks excellent for the 2nd Jewel.


Reef Hawaiian Pro ON today Friday + Power surfing shines at Reef Hawaiian Pro day 1 recap

Haleiwa is located at the western end of the Seven-Mile Miracle, in the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Its tricky reef usually works best during the winter season, with mid period Northwest swells coming far away from the Pacific Ocean. Haleiwa is known for the hollow rights, rippable sections and powerful closeouts.
