EL CONFITAL, Gran CanariaAfter several calls throughout the afternoon while monitoring conditions at El Confital, event officials have decided to postpone the kick-off of the ASP WQS 2-Star Movistar Ocean & Earth Pro until tomorrow.

With the much expected new swell supposed to reach El Confital during the night and solid surf in the seven to eight-foot (2.5 meter) to break tomorrow, all competitors are looking forward to tomorrow’s start.

“We waited for the tide to come-in as it usually pushes the waves but nothing really consistent came,” Movistar Ocean & Earth Pro contest director Jose said. “It’s looking like we could get classic Confital tubes in the next couple of days so we’ll be back tomorrow Thursday at 12.00 to make a call.”

Second-to-last event of this year’s ASP European WQS tour, the ASP WQS 2-Star competition could give current mid-ratings’ runners a good opportunity to climb-up before the final event, the awaited classic conditions promising an exciting battle.

With thirty-four Canarian surfers led by Tenerife Island resident and top ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) surfer Jonathan Gonzalez (Tenerife, CNY), 28, readying for their bout against favorites Leonardo Neves (BRA), Ruben Gonzalez (PRT) or Abdel El Harim (MAR), the usual hundreds of spectators will witness another spectacular surf contest running until Sunday, October 25, 2009.

When competition kicks-off, first out will be Canarian favorite Jonathan Gonzalez up against local surfers Gary and Bentor Gonzalez Dominguez.
