THE World Surf League's Newcastle Cup is back in action on Tuesday after conditions demanded an Easter break for competitors.
The Merewether beach event, which began on April 1, was halted on Good Friday when waves failed to give the world's best surfers enough to show off their skills.
Organisers made the call shortly before 7am, confirming that heats would resume.
