    Because this swell fades through Friday with at least one, maybe two large swells expected late Sun through Weds. They might as well get through the first few rounds while the winds are cooperating and then take lei days as necessary to pick the best conditions for the semi's and final.

    i get what you're saying but i just don't enjoy watching contests running in slop. the ASP has the same strategy but i feel like a specialty event like this should be held when it's thumping not mediocre.

    Well, the next two swells should have more west in them which works better at pipe, so hopefully it'll be firing after the weekend.

    Remember Bede's "Pipe" Master win?
    I think Da Hui has some say in the scheduling. They want the Tour gone for the best swells.
