PRAIA DE CARCAVELOS, Cascais - Portugal (Saturday, October 26, 2013) - Contest officials have called competition back ON at the ASP Prime Cascais Billabong Pro in clean offshore three-to-four foot (1 - 1.25 metre) waves at the iconic praia de Carcavelos, starting around 8am with the Round of 16 to potentially crown the event champion around 4pm this afternoon.

Event No. 6 of 8 on the 2013 ASP Prime Series, the Cascais Billabong Pro will crown the European Champion, decide the winner of the Portuguese Waves Series and play a vital role in the qualification campaigns towards the 2014 ASP World Championship Tour.

“As expected, this is clearly the best waves of the event’s whole waiting period,” Pritamo Ahrendt, ASP Head Judge stated. “We have playful 3-4Ft peaks breaking at Carcavelos this morning and if the swell hangs around all day we could crown the event champion later on today.”

Up first this morning will be Bede Durbidge (AUS) against Carlos Munoz (CRI) in Heat 1 of the Round of 16.

The ASP Prime Cascais Billabong Pro is scheduled from October 21-27, 2013 in Cascais, Portugal. For all results, photos, video highlights, press releases and LIVE webcast, log on to
