The conditions did not allow the completion of the VQS Lavafish Las Palmas contest on March 16-17th.
With more than 140 contestant, the competition started with fun rippable waves for the Groms 1st Round and summertime temperatures.
They were followed by the Juniors and while the Girls were competing, the decreasing swell combined with high tide completely turned playa La Cicer into a lake.
This doesn't happen often in Las Palmas and it took organizers and locals by surprise, the next day was really weak with unconsistent surf and surprise onshores wind blowouts.
The VQS Surf Tour has continued with the VQS Karramarro Fish in Anglet last weekend and coming soon to UK the VQS SidFish (April 13-14th) and shortly followed in Zarautz with the VQS Karramarro Fish II (April 21-22nd).
After looking into possibilities, the VQS Lavafish can't be rerun before the European VQS champs. Surfers will be qualified to attend the European VQS Champs in Hossegor (30 April-May1st 2013):
The first place of each ROUND 1 heats of the Groms, Juniors and Girls divisions.

It´s a great sadness it was not possible to finish this desired event after big efforts done for making this contest happen, and all the support received from everyone.
Especially Charlie "Black Betty", Chicho and the 3RRJ surf school team , Rayco for the clip, Platas for the photos, the judges, MC and the Ayuntamiento de Las Palmas.
Next VQS stop in Canaries will have double prize money!!!. Waves can not be bought (so far), so we will keep on praying to Neptuno at every Surf contest.
