HONOLUA BAY, Maui, Hawaii/USA (Monday, December 7, 2020) – The Maui Pro presented by ROXY, the first stop of the 2021 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), is ON starting at 7:05 a.m. local time today. After three straight lay days since the start of the waiting period, the world’s best surfers were greeted with sparkling five-to-eight foot (1.8 – 2.4 meter) surf this morning at Honolua Bay, and the competition will start with Seeding Round 1.

“The swell is definitely coming in,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Vice President of Tours and Competition. “It’s a little bit slow this morning with the high tide, but we’re looking for a good day today and looking to get as much as we can in.”

The second of back-to-back northwest swells is hitting Honolua Bay as predicted and is providing perfect overhead canvasses for the top 17 women in the world, and one wildcard, to express themselves in what is sure to be an action-packed day of world-class surfing.

The WSL has worked with medical experts and state and county officials to help ensure the Maui Pro presented by ROXY is safe for athletes, staff, and the community. To help prevent large gatherings, the competition is being staged as a non-spectator film production. In addition, the WSL requires multiple COVID-19 tests for athletes and staff, daily temperature checks, physical distancing measures, minimal personnel on-site, and frequent disinfecting of common surfaces. These standards were developed using guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and are in place for the entire film industry in Hawaii.
The Maui Pro presented by ROXY will be broadcast LIVE on WorldSurfLeague.com and the free WSL app. Also, check local listings for coverage from the WSL’s broadcast partners. The competition will be carried locally in Hawaii by the Spectrum Surf Channel.

 

 The holding period for the Maui Pro presented by ROXY opens tomorrow. The first call will be at 7:30 a.m. local time.

“What we’re looking at in the waiting period is that there is a significant swell in a couple of days’ time, and that’s going to be the money day for us, so we’re really excited about that,” said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Vice President of Tours and Competition. “We’re hoping that we’re going to get great waves out of that swell as well, but for today we’re going to be off and then the next call is going to be tomorrow morning at 7:30.”

During today’s call for the Maui Pro presented by Roxy, a double rainbow stretched across Honolua Bay, which organizers took as a good sign of things to come.

“The rainbow is here for the first day,” said Miley-Dyer. “We didn’t get waves, but the rainbow is a definite bit of a bonus. That’s a little blessing for us.”
