FINAL day of the Quiksilver Pro France presented by Orange is ON with the opening heats of Round 4 heading out in clean one-to-three (0.5 - 1 metre) surf at Les Bourdaines.
Stop No. 7 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour, the Quiksilver Pro France saw one of the most exciting days of competition yesterday, and with little swell forecast for the coming days, event organizers have opted to utilize the swell on offer today to complete the event.
"The surf is actually better today with clean lefts coming down the bank," Rod Brooks, Quiksilver Pro France Contest Director, said. "As always, we'll be monitoring conditions, but the plan is to crown a champion by the day's end."
