CASCAIS, Portugal (Sunday, September 25, 2016) - The QS10,000 Billabong Pro Cascais pres. by Allianz, final stop on the European Qualifying Series, will launch today at the backup venue of Guincho in good two-to-three foot conditions. The opening round of competition will start at 8:00a.m with the first half of Round Two on standby. Meanwhile, Top17 athletes at the Cascais Women’s Pro will enjoy a day OFF from competition after running  three full rounds on the opening day yesterday.

"We woke up this morning and there's way less wind that we thought, it's supposed to pick up today as well as the swell so we're going to get going at 8am with men's Round One and Round Two on standby," said WSL Deputy Commissioner, Travis Logie. "We'll make another call by the end of the first round and decide if Round Two is going out, hopefully the glare stays away and the wind doesn't get too gnarly and we can get a full day in."

First to take to the water will be Michael February (ZAF), Rafael Teixeira (BRA), Kaito Kino (HAW) and Kaito Ohashi (JPN) in the opening heat of Round 1.

Surfline, official forecaster for the WSL, are calling for:
 

The current NW swell drops off on Sunday, but a new and larger NW'erly swell/windswell mix builds in Sunday and peaks by Monday morning. Breezy NNW winds rise up over the next couple days as well. Another decent size shot of NW swell due Wed/Thurs the 28th-29th. *Guincho seeing much more size than Carcavelos.

The Cascais Women’s Pro runs in conjunction with the Billabong Pro Cascais pres. by Allianz, the WSL Men’s QS 10,000 event, and both will be webcast LIVE via WorldSurfLeauge.com and via the WSL mobile app.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!
