Conditions: Two-to-Three foot (1 metre) waves at Snapper Rocks. Light wind. Clear skies.
Official Assessment: Snapper Rocks is a righthand point break with plenty of canvas for the athletes to perform upon. Today, we have two-to-three foot (1 metre) swell with light winds out the back. The swell today is somewhat broken up so adaptability will be key today. Combination of major maneuvers score very well out at Snapper Rocks and the pointbreak aspect of the venue lends itself to the speed, power and flow components of the criteria. Important to note, however, that surfers avoid getting bogged down into doing the same turn over and over out here. We want to see variety of repertoire and those who go above the lip will be well-rewarded. - Rich Porta, ASP Head Judge
