The O’Neill Cold Water Classic Canada waiting period runs October 9th - 15th at Tofino British Columbia / Canada. Stu Kennedy is currently ranked 2nd ( 4800 points ) on the CWC series ratings and is only 44 points behind Royden Bryson. The winner of the series takes a $50k bonus. Stu will start the event in Ht 3 in the round of 96. Good luck mate.

UPDATE October 10th
Organizers have called a lay day for day 1.
“We’ve got messy surf out there this morning and and the biggest tides of the year right now, so we’re calling competition off for the day,” Matt Wilson, O’Neill Cold Water Classic Canada Contest Director said. “With plenty of time remaining in the waiting period we’d rather wait for improved conditions to start the event.”

UPDATE October 11th
The opening round of competition started today in four-to-six foot surf, but only completed four heats due to a massive incoming tide ready to swallow all of North Chesterman’s beach. Stu started well with a heat win scoring 12.83 over Hank Gaskell 11.90, Brad Ettinger 6.33 and Shannon Brown 5.20
