Swell too big at Sunset Beach

9:45 am on 26 November 2009

A 6-metre swell has again forced organisers to call off any surfing today in round 7 of the women's World Tour at Sunset Beach in Oahu.

The famous North Shore beach is one of the few venues in the world where competition is regularly called off because the waves are too big rather than not big enough.

The Taranaki surfer Paige Hareb is in the heats of the event, she's currently 8th in the standings with 2 rounds remaining.
