Quiksilver Pro France: Day 1

"Dane can do anything at any given time," said big Jordy Smith after his Round 2 match up against the world's best freesurfer. Unfortunately for spectators Dane, again, didn't do anything. Or to be correct, he did something but it was nowhere near enough, scoring just 12 points compared to Jordy's 18.90. It was an improvement over his Round 1 loss that netted just 8.50 points.

It's the second time in two competitions Dane has entered as a wildcard and been bumped - convincingly - in the second round.

Roxy Pro France: Finals Day

Overnight Sally Fitzgibbon won the Roxy Pro France beating Tyler Wright in a close-fought final. Wright nabbed a Perfect 10 midway through the final and looked to have it sewn up needing only an average back up score. However, she didn't find it and Fitzgibbon prevailed taking the title and jumping to third in the rankings.

After the Roxy Pro France Wright is just a few hundred points behind ratings leader, Carissa Moore. The Women's WCT title will come down to the last contest, next month's EDP Cascais Girls Pro at Portugal.

Cloud Nine, Day Two

Day Two of the 19th Annual Siargao International saw a number of Perfect 10 rides. Indonesia's Dede Suryana scored the first 10. In the very next heat Filipino local Osot Alcala took off on a thick-lipped beauty that stayed open an impossibly long time before ejecting him into the channel.
