Boardingmania Surf Camp at the Quiksilver Pro France 2013

Barrels, 30 degree sunshine and a bunch of aerial popping surfing pro’s made this year’s Quiksilver Pro one to remember!

With the competition site based at Seignosse, Le Penon – right next to our Surf Camp accommodation – all our Boardingmania guests were happy to roll out of bed and surf alongside the pro’s.

With a 2m+ plus swell and light offshore winds, Day 7 saw the competitors battle it
out at the barrel-fest that is La Graviere – and with 30+ degrees, the heat was on the
fans as well as the competitors 😉

With the final at Le Penon, the waves were not of world-class quality, but that didn’t stop Mick Fanning and Gabriel Medina show-casing the best of their abilities in the water. It was a close call throughout the heat, but good ol’ Mick finally took the title, with a final score of 16.66, beating 19 year old brazilian Medina by 1.66 points!

Our resident photographer, Sophie Crowley, was there with her big zoom to catch all the big wave action at Le Penon and La Graviere! See more of Sophie’s photos from the Quiksilver Pro France 2013 on her Facebook page:
