Pumping waves set for the final day of the Quiksilver Pro France
This year's Quiksilver Pro France got off to a cracking start with two days of solid 4-6ft surf and a long barreling right hand bank right out front.
The waves backed off slowly over the weekend and into the middle of the waiting period, but despite a couple of consecutive lay days, we’ve got one final pulse of strong W/NW groundswell expected to finish off the event in style.
Earlier this week a powerful low formed off Newfoundland, projecting a fetch of 35-50kt winds towards Europe. A long-period W/NW groundswell was generated by this system, arriving overnight ahead of a peak Thursday morning (local time). Clean 4-5ft+ surf is expected across the French beach breaks, with light variable winds tending offshore through the morning, offering great conditions for both the Mens and Womens Finals day.
