Quik Pro France Day 3 - Carvemag.com

.

Hossegor looking a bit good. The crowd was mahoosive and all.

The Quik and Roxy Pro France are done. Blazed through in three blistering days of action. The weather gods have been kind with all day offshores, summer like weather and pumping surf. You couldn’t really ask for more as different tides and swells gifted tubes, long walls and air sections. John John looked unstoppable in early rounds, channelling Slater’s uberfreak alien genius, Seabass and Kolohe were on form and legends like Fanning and Parko seemed a bit out of sorts. The semi with JJF and Medina was always going to decide the winner and Medina took the heat and the event. It does leave JJF leading the tour going into Portugal… On the women’s side all four of the semi finalists could’ve taken the event but the final between Riss and Lakey ended up with Carissa back on the familiar podium.

Right now there’s a DJ blasting tunes in the Centrale plaza in Hossegor, there’s thousands of people in town and it’s going to be a messy one. But the wise would take it easy as tomorrow is going to be pumping. Swell is building overnight and it’s going to get mental. Hopefully a top 34 freesurf frothfest to round off a cracking trip.

Tyler Wright nailing a third with a messed up knee is impressive/madness.
