Quik Pro 2016: the meeting point of the Landes

Any good lover of the ocean knows the perfection of post-summer period on the Landes beaches. Perfect lines, offshore wind, swell near-perfect. In short, conditions “on fire” attracting surfers and surfers from around the world. A real paradise, especially for its magical sandbanks, its unique culture. Quiksilver pro the appointment not to be missed!




The month of perfection on calendars surfers. A month is not randomly selected by the organizers of the WSL. From October 4 to 15 2016 runs on the beachbreaks Landes, the 9th stage of the Samsung Galaxy Championship. A step 100% made in Landes, attracting surfers from the 4 corners of the world. Hossegor, Seignosse and Capbreton become, starting next week instead of feasting and other all kinds of entertainment activities.

XXL playground
We are fortunate to live on a planet where everything is done for each of happiness. The surfer wishing to travel, knows that on each continent, find happiness. But when it comes to surfing the first names that come to mind are necessarily Pipeline, Hawaii, or more commonly known as “the pipe” for short, Teahupoo (Tahiti), Supertubos (Portugal) or the legendary reefs of Bali. But in the shadow of the greatest lies a smaller one that does not demerit, we appointed the Landes coast! In the heart of the Southwest, hide behind roads and forests, a playground sized for all surfers of the planet. Spots galore about a hundred kilometers, a paradise of beach break. Hossegor, the capital of French surfing spot known throughout Europe and more, holds a large number of competitions to his credit with magical tubes and particularly its elitist attendance.




As every year, the Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro France France privatize almost the Landes beaches for the purposes of the competition. The spots such as The Estagnots, dummies asses and Bourdaines be courted by Kelly Slater, Florence, Medina, and other figures of world surfing. But they are still available for all surfers fans of course!

2nd consecutive win in a row last year, Gabriel Medina thus pulls out of the game as a great favorite of the competition (as said, goes, never two without three). He will use this opportunity to improve its image and reclaim its position as the head of the standings in class WSL currently occupied by the prodigy John John Florence.
Playing at home, the French surfers will impose their style on the waves they surf the year and put the biggest on the bench (of course sand).


The French (…) and French
Expected to turn the French Johanne Defay must prove his superiority as it has made during the 2016 pro Fiji.
