More good news for the event. The forecasts for the period look excellent. Pat Caldwell has been watching the patterns and it seems the conditions will change around the beginning of March and he is expecting a good pattern of waves. â€œWe are expecting a WNW to broad NW swell in the 5-7 foot range Hawaiian scale and great conditions, â€œ exclaimed Contest Director Betty Depolito. â€œ I am so grateful to have good conditions for the girls after last seasons 45 days of rain. This will play out to be what it should be the best event venue in the world with the potential for explosive international coverage. For the girls that entered it will surely be life changing, this is what we have been waiting for!â€ The contest is expected to start on the first day of the waiting period March 6th.
