The Quik Pro France got off to something of a false start this morning, with officials electing to run after witnessing some incredible freesurf antics by the likes of John John, Conner and Italo.

one crazy left from Conner Coffin had the beach all a-buzz in particular . A crazy long left the American threaded was the day's main talking point from a 'holy shit' point of view, although it was jersey-less warm up fare, it, a flattering to deceive prequel to a pairof moist squib type heats.

Nat Young eeked out of the first heat past Parko and Banting, whilst Asing pipped Slater and Igarashi in a heat that total 16.5pts... for all three surfers combined.
