Alas, the ocean has conspired against the Roxy Pro France and chances of getting any heats run look slimmer than fast shake.

Cruelly, there has been surf in the at least head high range for the last 10 days leading up to the start of the waiting period. But when it comes to periods, being awkward, obtuse, moody, etc, well let's just say Huey, actually let's not say anything.

In the meantime, there's all kinda good stuff happening around the event, from surf lessons to fitness to SUP yoga to a 10k fun run to concerts in the evenings. If you like Roxy, like Music but are a bit over Bryan Ferry, get yerself down to BTZ sharpish, see?
