WQS Scotland kicks off at Brimms Ness

Source ASP: THURSO, Brims Ness, Scotland (Thursday, April 30, 2009) – The O’Neill Cold Water Classic Scotland by Swatch got underway in Thurso today, the renowned slab of Brims Ness offering consistent three foot (one meter) clean sets with barreling sections to Round 1 competitors. From deep barrels to vertical re-entries, surfing’s complete repertoire was displayed for the kick-off of the ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) 6-Star Prime rated event, a couple of men only breaking the 15.00 point mark with former ASP World Tour member Luke Munro (Gold Coast, AUS) leading proceedings with the day’s highest wave score.

With more points up for grabs than any other ASP WQS event this year thanks to its Prime status, the O’Neill CWC Scotland by Swatch attracted some of surfing’s biggest legends including former ASP World Champion and last year’s equal 5th Sunny Garcia (Oahu, USA).

“The water is not too cold and the waves were fun during the heat,” Garcia said. “It’s always nice to win a heat with a couple of average scores, I can’t complain about that. I just got through knee surgery and I am glad to be back here. I like the waves better that’s why I chose to come here rather than stay at home and surf Trestles.”

Officials are confident the expected new swell starts breaking in the next couple of days with a good chance of seeing the world famous wave of Thurso East deliver excellent to classic conditions soon. Another call will be made at 9 AM today Friday, May 1, 2009.
