For the fourth time now, Swatch invites the elite of female surfers from around the globe to battle it out on the shores of Aquitaine! The Swatch Girls Pro France is a 6 star event on the ASP World Qualifying Series and offers important points for the climb up (or staying on) to the ASP Women’s World Tour.
And if we believe local talent and European ASP queen Pauline Ado (which is very recommendable!), this one is not to miss!
BONJOUR EVERYONE! Welcome to the SWATCH GIRLS PRO FRANCE 2013!
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to south-west France for one of the finest surf events of the year, held in some of the most perfect beachbreak surf in the world. This year, now the fourth edition of the event, we are again hosting some of the best surfing talent in the world, staging some incredible après-surf activities and parties, and we’re doing it all in the very heart of the French summer season!
The famous coastline of Hossegor-Seignosse has been staging top level surf events in summer since the 1980’s, and the once-sleepy resort town has become known throughout the surf world for its warm summer waters, powerful surf, laid back lifestyle, pristine natural surroundings, and of course, infamous nightlife. It’s a big honour for me to compete on home soil, to welcome all the amazing talent from all over the world to the beaches I grew up surfing and to showcase one of the most beautiful parts of the European coastline at its very finest.
Whether you’ve come to meet and cheer on your favourite pros, party like there’s no tomorrow, take in a bit of French beach culture at the European surfing HQ, or all the above, we look forward to seeing you at the beach. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
– Pauline Ado
So mark down August 21st-25th 2013 in your calendars in big bright letters right now and make sure nothing overwrites it – this is THE chance to watch some of the best surfers of the world live in action!
