An Afternoon Of Fantasy
We took a field trip out to Jeremy Flores’s Fantasy Factory. It's tucked into the woods just outside Hossegor, hidden by the monotonous delirium of a small industrial complex. You park your car, walk down a pathway, open a door and step into a new world. Fantasy, found.
There’s a perfect ramp and a hoard of skateboards begging for your feet. Go ahead, grab one. Drop in. Get some speed. Try the biggest air of your life. Don’t worry about falling — there’s a massive foam pit. Fantasy is no place for pain.
Our whole crew indulged. Everybody had their own approach, but Javier Mendizabal and Zach Miller earned the most screams and board taps. Tweaked spins. Wild grabs. Pop for days, if not weeks. It was many things but most of all, it was fantastic.
“First off, I didn’t really retire.” – Freddy P
No heats. No worries. The #QuikPro France is on hold until at least 1 PM local time, but you can jump behind the scenes and see what’s really been happening over here quiksilver.com/profrance
So Close, But Kind Of Far
The Quiksilver Pro France was supposed to finish today. For real. The trophy was wheeled down and the announcement was made — we were dead set on declaring a champion. But, unfortunately, the conditions didn’t get the memo. Weird winds mixed with weird tides made for weird waves. And we’re not the type for settling. We capped it after the Quarters, but a lot of good stuff happened before that.
For the second day in a row, the heat of the day was surfed by John John Florence and Filipe Toledo. There were airs and airs and airs and airs. It was the future, except right now. Other than that, our boy Banting lost in a close heat. The good news, though, is that momentum exists and it ain’t life ain’t so bad when you’re rolling into Portugal straight off your best result of the year.
And where do we go from here? We’ll see. There are only three heats left to run. Only an hour of surfing separating the king from his crown. With plenty of time left in the waiting period, we’re sure this song will end on a high note. And until then, we’re going to have some fun.

It was cold. It was gritty. It was rainy. It was beautiful. Keanu Asing just won the #QuikPro France - his first World Tour win ever. Congrats Keanu!
We're moving the #QuikPro France contest site 300 meters down the sand to Le Guardian, for a potential finish today. The World Surf League Commissioner is looking to kick things off in a hours time.

It. Is. On. Welcome to the 2016 #QuikPro France. Watch all the big barrels, broken boards and radical times go down right now at quik.to/profrance16. Matt Banting, Kanoa Igarashi and wildcard Leonardo Fioravanti are in the first few heats.
Big man. Big section. Big air. Mikey Wright doesn’t do small.

Jesse Mendes Wins 2016 Billabong Cascais Pro
He came. He surfed. He conquered. Jesse Mendes just made a big statement with an even bigger win at the Billabong Pro Cascais.
2016 has been very kind to Leonardo Fioravanti. It started with a strike mission to Fiji with Kelly Slater and it could very well end with a spot on the World Tour. See what all that magic looked like in an edit called The Arrival, which is coming soon.
We started with 36 surfers. Then heat by heat, round by round, the best moved on and the rest went home. Now there are only 4 guys left in the #QuikPro France — but the tallest part of the podium is only big enough for 1. Watch the finals of the #RoxyPro & #QuikPro right now. It’s going to be insane. quik.to/profrance16
The #QuikPro France: OFF for the day. However, let's reminisce on the good times when it was very ON.
For all of our coverage of the good, the bad and the funny happening in and around the event, hit this link: quiksilver.com/profrance and catch up while we wait for better waves to finish in. PS - rumor has it tomorrow could be pretty good.

Nobody knew what to expect.
Rumors of some big names showing up to play some music at the Quik party — like Mike D of the Beastie Boys and Busy P big. Nobody could confirm it though.
That's it. We're here.
Crisp. Cool. Beautiful. It’s a great morning to do plenty of things in France, but running a surf contest isn’t one of them. Check back tomorrow at 8 AM for the next call of the #QuikPro France.
It has been big and small. Barrelling and playful. Clean and gritty. Sunny and rainy. Hot and cold. Dull and emotional. Slow and fast. Pumping, pulsing, so on and so forth. But more than anything, it was one hell of an event. That’s all from the 2016 #QuikPro France. We’ll see you all next year ???
Shouts, whispers, murmurs and more — There’s been a lot of talk around Hossegor about whether or not the #QuikPro France will be back on today. We’ll just leave you with this clip of Kehu Butler on dusk last night and a "maybe." Film by Wade Carroll
#quikpro is off
“It was almost a blessing when he got hurt last year. It gave him time to think about what he’s doing and where he wants to go. He came out on fire after that.” Kelly Slater on Leonardo Fioravanti. Watch The Arrival, a short film on the year when a dream became reality for Leo. And yes, it includes a trip to Fiji with Kelly.
This year, Leonardo Fioravanti let his surfing do the talking and the whole world listened. He beat World Champions. He charged Cloudbreak after breaking his back in similar waves. And as of right now, he is leading the QS. After a lot of hype, it’s safe to say the 18-year-old has officially arrived.
The Arrival, a short film that tells the story of Leo’s dream year and, more importantly, will fire you up to go surfing. See the full edit at quiksilver.com/thearrival
John John Florence recalls some of his best (and burliest) moments from the past at the Quiksilver Pro France.
More moments from history ?? quik.to/profrance5
He was the first Portuguese surfer to qualify for the World Tour. He spent nearly a decade competing against with the world's best. He played a major role in the passionate boom of surfing in his homeland. He's Tiago Pires, and his movie premieres tonight — after that, it'll be the first surf film to ever hit mainstream Portuguese cinema.
Go fast. Get high. Zach Miller and the complex result of a simple formula. ?? Javier Mendizabal
It started with the women and it started with a bang. Tyler Wright won the first Roxy Pro heat. Courtney Conlogue lost the second. And with that, the World Surf League World Title was won by one of our favorite surfer’s favorite sister. Champagne on the beach followed. Our crew, some of whom were fresh off a skate mission to combat the flatness, indulged.
Back to the boys: Keanu Asing won the first semi and Gabriel Medina won the second. For Gabriel, the final was a chance to gain good ground on John John Florence in the Title race. For Keanu, it was a chance to win the first CT final he’d ever surfed in. For everyone watching, it was intense. Keanu was patient the whole heat. He waited for the best waves. Then he waited for the best sections on them and surfed them like a champion — which is exactly what he became today. Patience really does pay off.

The formula for a good party is pretty simple. But the difference between a good party and a great party comes in the quality of the ingredients - great music, great food, and great friends equates to a great time. That's what was had last night by everyone who turned up at the Boardriders Capbreton last night.
