    The way I understand the waiting period is that for this contest, the contest MUST take place between Apr 15 - 26, 2015. Not before, Not after. Its called a "waiting period", but it just means they could run the contest anytime during that period when they think the conditions will be best for the contest.

    Man! the forecast:

    Brief Overview: Very solid, back to back SW groundswells prevail on Wednesday and Thursday, easing a bit on Friday. Another very strong SSW groundswell looks possible for Saturday, and could be even larger than the surf for Wed/Thur. Morning wind conditions look favorable for the next few days, with some periods of side or onshore flow in the afternoons.

    Note: Surf sizes below are face heights and focused on Margaret River Main Break.

    WEDNESDAY 15th: Very solid SW groundswell (240-220 degrees).
    Swell/Surf: 12-20’+ faces with occasional larger sets. Very strong surf all day, but with a slight building trend from early morning to early afternoon.
    Wind/Weather: E/ESE wind 6-10kts in the morning, with a little leftover bump/morning sickness possible early from today’s southerly wind. Wind trends to SE late morning and eventually SSE flow builds over the afternoon 10-14kts.

    THURSDAY 16th: Very strong SW swell (235-215 degrees) reinforcements rebuild into the afternoon.
    Swell/Surf: Very similar size to Wednesday, with a rebuilding trend into the afternoon with continued 12-20’+ faces and some occasional larger sets.
    Wind/Weather: E wind 5-10kts through the morning, trending to light/variable wind mid day before rising SSE/S flow later afternoon 8-12kts.

    FRIDAY 17th: Strong SW swell (235-215 degrees) trending down through the day.
    Swell/Surf: Strongest in the morning, with an easing trend through the day. Still solid 10-15’+ faces, with some 18’+ bombs very possible in the morning.
    Wind/Weather: Light E wind in the morning, trending to onshore SW flow by the afternoon 8-10kts+.
