Quiksilver Pro France 2017 – Hossegor

October 7, 2017 - October 18, 2017

Quiksilver Pro France 2017

From the 7th to the 18th October 2017 the Quik Pro France sees world’s best surfers descend on Hossegor in south-west France to take on the notorious beachbreak barrels.


With its huge stretch of west-facing Atlantic beach, France has long been known as one of the great surfing nations. Each year the World Surf League (WSL) Quiksilver Pro France welcomes the elite of the surfing world to Hossegor on the Aquitaine coast. From Hawaii’s John John Florence to Brazil’s Gabriel Medina and France’s very own Jeremy Flores, 36 of the world’s best surfers will compete in the ultimate beachbreak showdown.

The Quik Pro France is the 9th stage of the World Surf League championships and the shifting sandbanks mean that unlike the other stages the competition spot may need to change at short notice. The WSL will check the banks from Seignosse through Hossegor to Capbreton and they’ll change the venue depending on the conditions. In 2013, the comp was moved at the last minute from Hossegor up to Le Penon in Seignosse. This year, the organisers are hoping to run the comp at La Gravière, but there’s every likelihood that the venue could shift. To give you an idea, the event has been held in 4 different spots in 5 years – Les Culs Nus (2010 and 2015), La Gravière (2011 and 2012), Le Penon (2013) or even Les Gardians (2014). So, if you’re heading to the comp, make sure you have some sort of transport like a bike that will allow you to get up and down the beach in the event that the comp unexpectedly changes location.

Why the logo in gold color? You changed logo, maybe because next year Quiksilver 50th year anniversary?

Would love to know what camera this was shot on

Quiksilver Pro France 2017 News

Kelly Slater fans are going to be disappointed. The 11 times surfing world champion is going to miss this year’s event. He’s nursing a foot injury sustained during the J’Bay stage in South Africa.

The WSL who have just published the 1st round line-up for the Quik Pro France, has decided to replace Kelly Slater with Californian surfer Nat Young. Australia’s Josh Kerr will also miss the French stage of the championship. No reason has so far been given. Josh Kerr will be replaced by the Brazilian Jesse Mendes.

Another surprise absentee is last year’s winner, Keanu Asing. Despite his Quik Pro France win in 2016, for the time being he’s slipped out of the top 34.

Event Location

It’s finally been confirmed that La Gravière in Hossegor will be the spot to host the competition. The banks have been holding up well again this year and with some decent swell there should be some epic beachbreak waves on show. La Gravière is a great spot for spectators as you get heavy surf conditions super close to the beach.

Local surfing talent to watch out for

There’ll be a few Frenchies in the lineup to stoke the home crowd. Michel Bourez, currently placed 16th, will enter round 1 opposite Joel Parkinson and Jack Freestone. Jérémy Flores, currently 17th, will showdown against Gabriel Medina and Italian Leonardo Fioravanti, the 2013 ASP European junior champion who lives in Seignosse, so he knows these waves especially well. Joan Duru (18th) will be up against Brazilians MIguel Pupo and Filipe Toledo.
