|HOSSEGOR, France (Friday, October 13, 2017) – The Quiksilver Pro France has been called back ON in firing la Graviere with offshore six-to-eight foot waves. The remaining four heats of the Quiksilver Pro France Round Two will start at 8:30 a.m and both the men’s Round Three and the Roxy Pro France semifinals are on StandBy for a possible start later.
“We have heaps of swell left over and pristine conditions,,” Travis Logie, WSL Deputy Commissioner said. “We’re going to finish Round Two and towards the end of the round make a call to decide whether to go into the women’s semifinals or continue with the men’s Round Three. It looks like it’s going to be a long day of surfing.”
Michel Bourez (PYF) will take on Kanoa Igarashi (USA) in Round Two, Heat 9 of the Quiksilver Pro France.
Surfline, official forecasters for the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro France, are calling for:
Medium size NW swell will ease through Friday and fade further during the first half of Saturday as favorable wind continues. An even larger swell will fill in for Sunday, building Saturday afternoon/evening and dropping on Monday. Another strong WNW swell looks increasingly likely for Tuesday before fading Wednesday, although wind conditions may be tricky.
