TEAHUPO’O, Tahiti, French Polynesia (Saturday, August 12, 2023) – Competition has been called OFF for the day at the SHISEIDO Tahiti Pro Presented by Outerknown, the penultimate stop on the World Surf League (WSL) 2023 Championship Tour (CT) season. With small and inconsistent conditions on offer at the world-renowned Teahupo’o, the WSL Tours and Competition team will await better waves to run the next heats.
“We are off for today and tomorrow here at the SHISEIDO Tahiti Pro,” said Renato Hickel, WSL Director of Tours and Competition. “Today the waves are two-to-three feet, which is smaller than anticipated and very inconsistent. This is also a dying swell, which is why we are calling the event off tomorrow as well. We’ll continue to review the forecasts, but we’re currently targeting Tuesday, August 15th, with a new medium-size swell arriving in Tahiti.”
