No heats took place on Wednesday at Basse-Pointe and nothing is going to happen on Thursday either. The organizers of the Martinique Surf Pro prefer to wait for the best waves to begin the fifth round. The 32 surfers that remain in the competition are invited to turn up at lunchtime on Friday at the competition site. The next heats should then take place or if not, it will be on Saturday morning. The semi-finals and the final will take place on Sunday with huge crowds expected.

For the second edition of the Martinique Surf Pro, the waiting period has been extended to eight days. In real terms, four days will be enough to complete an event. During the first three days of the competition (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) four rounds were completed on the long, powerful waves at Basse-Pointe. Out of the 140 surfers registered, 32 have made it through to the fifth round (see the list below). The organizers therefore got ahead of schedule and there are still ten hours left to complete the Martinique Surf Pro competition.

“The surfers come from around the world and we want to offer them the best waves”
Every morning, five people decide whether or not the competition will be held during the day. They are Tom Sibon (director of the competition), Rob Gunning (tour manager for the World Surf League), Yannick Sarran (chief referee) and Nicolas Clémenté and Nicolas Ursulet (the organizers). This morning (Wednesday) at 7, they decided not to launch any heats. Then around lunchtime, they got together again to announce that the competition would not start again until noon on Friday. “The surfers come from around the world and we want to offer them the best waves. A decent swell is expected later in the week, so this should offer a great show,” explained Tom Sibon.

Meanwhile, the 32 surfers that have qualified for the fifth round are having to remain patient and can grab some rest, train or visit the island...

Timothée Bisso (Guadeloupe, 19, qualified for the fifth round):
“We’re lucky to be on an island with rivers and great beaches. There’s plenty to do until the competition restarts. If there are any waves, I’ll get out there, as long as I don’t need to take any risks of getting injured. It’s nice to have a short break in the competition, as that means we get some rest and can enjoy the sites.”

Slade Prestwich (South Africa, 21, qualified for the fifth round):
“I’m the only South African left in the competition and I’d love to reach the final. It’s not going to be easy, as the standard is high. There are only good surfers left, including some from the Championship Tour. I love Martinique, as the waves are powerful and regular. I’ve just come out of the water and really enjoyed myself. The waves allow us to carry out some fantastic manoeuvres, so I can’t wait to restart the competition later this week.”
