Mick Fanning Wins Fourth Quiksilver Pro France,

Mick Fanning (AUS) 32, has just won the Quiksilver Pro France in an action packed final over Gabriel Medina (BRA) 19, in 3-4Ft (1 metre) waves at the back up venue of Le Penon in Seignosse.

Stop No.8 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France juggled with a difficult forecast to showcase the World’s Best surfers in quality waves over the two iconic spots of La Graviere and Le Penon.




There's a storm brewing in the North Atlantic right now. It's heading towards Portugal and is expected to reach peak intensity upon landfall on or around October 3. It's kind of unusual, this storm: Two major fronts, nearly equal in size and strength, will meet head-on, which will make for one powerful and unpredictable tempest.


Quarterfinalists decided for the Quik Pro France

John John Florence (HAW) 20, current World No.15 coming into the Quiksilver Pro France, started on a fast hollow righthander in the opening seconds of his Round 4 matchup against Mick Fanning (AUS) and Michel Bourez (PYF) 27. The talented Hawaiian exited the barrel beautifully to score an excellent 8.00 point ride which eventually won him a ticket for the quarter-finals.


Clay Marzo's biography hits shelves in 2014

Freestyle surfing great Clay Marzo and his mastery of the waves, as well as his life with Asperger's Syndrome, are the subject of "Just Add Water," a biography by Robert Yehling. The book is scheduled to be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2014.

The book will feature Marzo's rise to greatness as one of the most unique and gifted surfers ever, as well as his lifelong struggle to deal with everyday life because of what was diagnosed as Asperger's Syndrome, a developmental "re-wiring" of the brain, in 2007.


Quiksilver Pro France round 3 finished 8am HI time. Should restart tonight 8pm.

The Quiksilver Pro France saw action resume this morning in France (last nite for Hawaii) with the third round of competition at the main site of La Graviere after four consecutive lay days due to small surf on offer. An expected 4-6Ft swell built overnight is producing quality barrels today at the iconic La Graviere in Hossegor.

Event No.8 of 10 on the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France will play a vital role in both the ASP World Title race and the requalification campaigns of surfers in the Elite Top34.

"Oh yea, this one was fun to uncover and look at this morning. I'm supposed to stay off my feet a week to let this heal properly. Let this be a lesson sun n' surf fans. 4 cancers taken out in two months. This one over my Achilles tendon is from not putting sun screen on the back of your legs all the way to your ankles (not like I used sun screen back when I got all this) ..BUT YOU KIDS SURE SHOULD!! USE YOUR SCREEN!!!!!!! This could have been on my face, yikes! Sorry if you were eating when you saw this".

A personal and heavy surf story by Garrett McNamara

Back in the day Getting ready for #Nazare This was one of the biggest waves I've ever encountered. It was at Mavericks the day Suzan Casey came to visit for her book the wave. Getting out was virtually impossible due to fog thick as pea sup.
After waiting a while @john_john_florence and I finally got the balls to navigate our way out as we got to the line up the sky parted it was weird a little hole only over the line up you couldn't see out and you couldn't see in but the line up was clear. As we got closer a monster came in and Flee was on it he barely made it to the bottom and then just fell back the monster exploded on him he came out of the explosion laying back some how stood up and made it. @john_john_florence said "that gave me the shivers".
