QUIKSILVER PRO FRANCE 2013


The 2013 Quiksilver Pro France champion Mick Fanning took out Brazil’s Gabriel Medina in the Final to take the title and the lead in the ASP World Title Race.

Some of the biggest airs and perfect rides seen in contests this year were thrown down on the Finals day with some epic heat draws. Fanning consecutively outsurfed Hawaiian phenomenon John John Florence and Joel Parkinson on his way to the final, where he found himself backed up against the wall with Medina in the lead. The two-time World Champ sticked to his game plan and attacked a bumpy righthander with all his power to scalp an 8.83 and steal the show.
