As storms and wild surf lash the west coast of Vancouver Island, the O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada 2010 goes on hold for the first day of competition.

Tofino, Canada October 9, 2010 With storms raging through night producing wild winds, pouring rain and massive surf, it was no surprise that the O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada 2010 awoke to a lay day on this first day of competition.

In an area of the world where 全torm Watching is an actual pastime, these conditions for the third stop on the O誰eill Cold Water Classic Series 2010 have been no surprise.

"It was crazy driving across Vancouver Island to get here last night," said Timmy Reyes, who is in Tofino for the first time ever. "It felt like there were 100 knot winds, it was like a hurricane," he said. "There were trees blowing all over the place and so many leaves in the road. Plus all these waterfalls were coming down from the mountains onto the road. We basically got shacked the whole way coming here!"

Julian Wilson - another surfer who is in Tofino for the first time - also added another 素irst to his trip: "This is the first time I致e ever worn boots, a hood or gloves in my life," said Julian. "It痴 not as bad as I thought. I was worried it would be really restricting."

He is also the first surfer to clock up a bear sighting on this trip. "We saw one as we were driving up here," he said. "It was in a town walking across the street as we were driving through. We tried to speed up to get closer to it, but it went off."

"I think it痴 an awesome place," said Julian. "I chose to come here over Brazil because everyone who came here last year was telling me how amazing it was. And it looks like there will be a lot of swell for the contest, which looks good."

Whilst this first day of the 6 Star ASP contest was called off, contest director Matt Wilson is optimistic about the days ahead: "Today was a solid 6 foot, and some of the beaches were not handling it so well," he said. "Tomorrow and the days ahead look a bit more promising."
