Watch: La Graviere last week
Why lose sleep over what could have been?
After a week of abysmal conditions, the organisers of the Quik Pro France must've been relieved to wake last Tuesday morning to good, clean waves. They promptly ran Round 1 of the comp in fun, if slightly fat, lefthanders at Les Culs Nus. Meanwhile, just 1 km down the beach, La Graviere was having its best day in years. Great for the locals, less so for the competitors.
Amongst the crowd is ol' Freddy Compagnon. You'll remember Freddy as the guy who invented the SUP step off to Alaia - see 0:46. Looks like the sport is catching on 'cause a goofyfooter also gets in on the act with three different waves through the clip.
