Fall is here, the waves has come back and with it, the Quiksilver Pro along with the crowd.
Even before it started the contest zone was firing and all the surfers were already there battling to get the best tube (Cf. article on Royal Barrique).
It’s been a long time no seen a Graviere like this, I arrived there just before the wind came up and noticed, without exaggerating from the dune to the shore, over ten deep barrels made by the pros and chargers.
This first day of contest wasn’t that good if we speak of quality of wave and we could see that some surfers has been disapointed by that. The high coefficient at low tide affected the wave a lot.
Anyway it is always a pleasure to see all the pro gathering around Hossegor and the surroundings.
