Quiksilver Pro France 2021 – Hossegor

October 16, 2021 - October 24, 2021

Quiksilver Pro France 2018

From the 16th to the 24th October 2021 the Quiksilver Pro France and the Roxy Pro France sees the best Championship Tour surfers descend on Capbreton, Hossegor and Seignosse in south-west France to take on the notorious beachbreak barrels.


With its huge stretch of west-facing Atlantic beach, France has long been known as one of the great surfing nations. Each year the World Surf League (WSL) Quiksilver Pro France welcomes the elite of the surfing world to Hossegor on the Aquitaine coast. From Hawaii’s John John Florence to Brazil’s Gabriel Medina and France’s very own Jeremy Flores, the world’s best surfers have battled it out at the ultimate beachbreak showdown.

Historically, the Quik Pro France is the 9th stage of the World Surf League championships. This year it’s the third of four Challenger Series events and there are 10,000 qualification points on table for whoever can top the podium. The shifting sandbanks mean that the competition spot may need to change at short notice. The WSL will check the banks from Seignosse through Hossegor to Capbreton and they’ll change the venue depending on the conditions. In 2013, the comp was moved at the last minute from Hossegor up to Le Penon in Seignosse. This year, the organisers are hoping to run the comp at Les Culs Nus, but there’s every likelihood that the venue could shift. To give you an idea, the event has been held in 4 different spots in 5 years – La Gravière (2011, 2012 and 2019), Les Culs Nus (2010 and 2015), Le Penon (2013) or even Les Gardians (2014). So, if you’re heading to the comp, make sure you have some sort of transport like a bike that will allow you to get up and down the beach in the event that the comp unexpectedly changes location.

Quiksilver Pro France 2021 News

South West France is home to some of the world’s best sandbanks. The offshore Capbreton Canyon channels the ocean’s energy towards Hossegor and serves to magnify the swell.

Every year, a location in Hossegor is hand-picked as the event site based off sandbar conditions. This year, the contest organisers are looking at Les Estagnots and La Gravière with the central location for the event being at Les Culs Nus. The waiting period runs from October 16th to the 24th and if the forecast holds true, it’s sure to showcase some of the best surfing you’ll see all year.

The Quiksilver Pro France is the ninth out of eleven events on the WSL Championship Tour, which means it always puts the heat on the World Title race. On the men’s side, Filipe Toledo currently holds the Jeep Leader Jersey but he is being closely followed (and hunted) by fellow Brazilian Gabriel Medina. On the women’s side, Stephanie Gilmore holds the No.1 spot and if she continues on track, she could claim the Title in the coming weeks.

Gabriel Medina has a solid track record in Hossegor and is the defending event champ. After winning the last two WSL events – the Tahiti Pro Teahupo’o and Surf Ranch Pro, Medina is again fired up for Hossegor. He was ranked World No. 2 at the end of last year so he’ll be feeling the title race pressure.

Filipe Toledo’s barrel to massive aerial 360 earned him a perfect 10 at the 2016 Quiksilver Pro France, so it’s not going to be easy to snatch that leader jersey from him.

Event Location

It’s finally been confirmed that Les Culs Nus in Hossegor will be the spot to host the competition. The banks have been holding up well again this year and with some decent swell there should be some epic beachbreak waves on show. Les Culs Nus is a great spot for spectators as you get heavy surf conditions super close to the beach.

Surfing talent to watch out for

Currently, some of the top Men’s seeds down for the event are Kanoa Igarashi, Frederico Morais, Yago Dora and Leonardo Fioravanti, the 2013 ASP European junior champion who lives in Seignosse, so he knows these waves especially well.

On the Women’s side the surfers to watch out for are Tatiana Weston-Webb, Caroline Marks, Keely Andrew, Nikki Van Dijk, Brisa Hennessy and France’s very own Johanne Defay.
