At the end of 4 days of competition, it was the French duo Jérémy Flores and Michel Bourez who won the first edition of this innovative format Festival. The two friends outperformed the competition throughout the week, in epic surf conditions!
The week-long celebration of the Surf Culture with surf competitions, a music festival, skateboarding, and film screenings is coming to an end tonight in Hossegor. This first edition was a complete success with more than 25,000 people attending throughout the week, to watch the best surfers in the world. Surfers teamed up in pairs to compete in a ‘serious fun’ expression session format with a new theme each day: best Airs & Barrels, best Combos, Biggest turns and Twin-fin Challenge. For the last day of the competition, the Twin Fin Challenge offered an incredible show.
In addition to Live concerts and side events, the Quiksilver Festival was blessed by epic weather conditions which allowed surfers to achieve incredible hits in waves of 3 to 4m.
