https://youtu.be/WSzO9GD2WtA The 2015 Quiksilver Pro France, number nine on the 2015 Men’s Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour, begins tomorrow, Tuesday, October 6th and runs through Saturday, October 17th. The heavy, pounding main beach break known as Hosseger on the southern coast of France are known to toss up a 10-to-12-foot face when the fall swells arrive. Surfers are prepared for the fast, hollow waves that give plenty of opportunities for deep barrels and quick ramps for aerials.
Defending event champion John John Florence, and current world number 18, will undoubtedly have a field day with his casual approach of highly creative barrel riding and aerial surfing in pursuit of earning back-to-back Quiksilver Pro France event titles. However Hossegor sets the standard for the best beach break waves in the world, with those pulsing pits, ramps, and open faces just looking to be carved. The Quiksilver Pro France is a true test of a surfer's versatility, and only the most well-rounded surfers can take victory here.
The 2015 Roxy Pro France waiting period runs parallel to the 2015 Quiksilver Pro France, and highlights an exciting world title race between current world number one, Courtney Conlogue, and number two, Carissa Moore. Three events remain on the tour, so the Pro France is crucial in determining the world championship.
The Surfline forecast for the 2015 Quiksilver/Roxy Pro France events calls for minor surf to open contest waiting period while a more favorable storm track over the North Atlantic sets up the potential for more surf towards the 8th and 9th and into the following weekend.
