Event organizers will reconvene to make another call at 11:15 a.m. local time.
“The wind this morning is a lot calmer than what we’ve seen over the past few days and there is still some nice swell in the water” said Deputy Commissioner, Jessi Miley-Dyer. “We’re actually going to start with the men today. We’re going to do four heats of men followed by four heats of women and finish Round 4. Then we’ll make another call and decide what we’re going to do for the rest of the day.”
Alejo Muniz (BRA), Jesse Mendes (BRA), Vasco Ribeiro (PRT) and Vicente Romero (ESP) will be first to take to the water in Round 2 Heat 5 of the Billabong Pro Cascais.

Surfline, official forecaster for the WSL, are calling for:
Expect a lingering mix of NW/WNW swells early on Wednesday before reinforcing WNW swell moves in during the afternoon and offers bigger surf towards the end of the day. WNW swell continues into Thursday but gradually eases. Better wind conditions expected for Guincho Wednesday and Thursday. Lingering swell fades on Friday before new NW/WNW swell builds on Saturday into Sunday. Note that Carcavelos will be smaller than Guincho the next several days.
