Small Surf Forces Lay Day for Quiksilver Pro France, Swell on the Horizon
World's Best in France - ASPWorldTour.com


Location:    Hossegor/Seignosse, South West France
Holding period: September 23 - 29, 2014
Call: Lay Day
Conditions: 1 - 2 ft and Clean Conditions

HOSSEGOR/SEIGNOSSE, Southwest Coast/France (Tuesday, September 30, 2014) - Small surf in the one-to-two foot (0.5 metre) range has prompted event organizers to call a lay day for the Quiksilver Pro France.


Stop No. 9 of 11 on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France is a critical stop in both the hunt for the world surfing crown as well as the battle for requalification. The event will resume when conditions improve.


“Cleaner today but much smaller and not a high frequency for waves,” Kieren Perrow, ASP Commissioner, said. “We’ve called competition off for the day and will return in the morning to reassess conditions.”


Surfline, official forecasters for the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro France, are calling for:


WNW swell continues eases today and into tomorrow. New WNW swell fills in on Thursday and peaks on Friday. WNW swell continues for next weekend.


When competition resumes, up first will be Josh Kerr (AUS) up against Adrian Buchan (AUS) in Heat 5 of Round 3.


The Quiksilver Pro France will be webcast LIVE at ASPWorldTour.com

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!
