Fresh off a smoking Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa, the 2008 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing may very well get the action going on it’s second leg as the Wednesday forecast is looking juicy for the O’Neill World Cup of Surfng at Sunset Beach. The holding period for the event technically opened up on Monday, but with swells set to roll in on the back half of this week, event organizers haven’t been under a whole lot of pressure to get things moving.
The North Shore’s own Makua Rothman comes in to the O’Neill World Cup as the defending champion and will no doubt be a heavy favorite as the event gets underway. With Sunset being a completely different, heavy, and just an overall gnarly wave altogether, the doors are always open for surfers with local knowledge to swoop in and snatch a win.
Our friends at Wetsand will be hosting the webcast. And as always, we will keep you posted with fresh updates as the action at Sunset starts moving.
