Las Americas Pro Tenerife
Small northerly trade swell is the main source of surf first couple of days
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 January, 2018 - Las Americas, Tenerife - Event officials have called a Lay-Day at the Las Americas Pro Tenerife, Stop No. 2 on the World Surf League (WSL) European Qualifying Series.
The lack of swell on offer on the opening day of the event’s waiting period left no choice but to call competition off for the day in Las Americas. A difficult forecast could potentially have organizers of the event look at a back-up setup in the Arona council, the southern tip of the island of Tenerife.
“We had leftovers of the previous swell yesterday and our surfers got a few waves to warm up,” Rob Gunning, WSL Europe Tour Manager stated. “Unfortunately it has completed disappeared today so we had to call a lay day. Looking ahead we have four days of potential for good waves so we’ll monitor the forecasts and make a decision on when and where to run.”
MagicSeaWeed gave a first overview of the conditions on hand for the week: Older NNW swell will be easing opening day. Small northerly trade swell is the main source of surf first couple of days of the event window. Northerly trade swell/small NW swell mix through midweek. A little stronger Northerly trade swell is on the radar last few days of event window. Also some South Atlantic activity mixes in a long period but small S swell pulse.
Surfers and event officials will reconvene at 7:45 a.m Tuesday to reassess conditions at Las Americas.
