With a run of lay days already racked up, continued small surf in the one-to-two-foot (0.5 metre) range at Barra da Tijuca has forced event organisers to call yet another lay day for the Billabong Rio Pro.

Stop No 3 of 10 on the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Billabong Rio Pro completed the opening round competition on the opening day of the event window and will recommence once conditions improve.

Groundhog day here at Barra (da Tijuca) with small surf and another lay day for men’s competition,’ said Rich Porta, ASP International head judge. ‘Fortunately, the event window affords us a few days of no competition for less-than-ideal conditions and we should be back on in the coming days as the new swell fills in.’

Event organisers will reconvene tomorrow at 7.30am (8.30pm AEST) to assess conditions.

When competition resumes Taj Burrow, 34, will take on wildcard Gustavo Fernandes from Brazil Heat 1 of Round 2.
