Longboard riders left on shore

YET another lay day has been called at the ASP World Longboard Tour in Italy.

The Sunshine Coast's Mitch Surman is due for a heat-two showdown with Brazillian Eduardo Bage as soon as the competition gets underway.

Event organisers met yesterday afternoon to assess conditions.

A large high-pressure system over the Mediterranean Sea has not allowed developing lows to push across and improve the conditions at the main event site in Levanto.

Director Julien Hamel said he had received the latest information for the swell for the remaining days of the official waiting period.

A meeting was scheduled to be held last night on the event.
