Ten-point rides, broken boards and wave hold down. The Round 2 of the Quiksilver Pro France was surfed in extreme beach break conditions, at La Graviere.
Four-to-six foot (1.5 – 2 metre) barrels were on offer for the win-or-nothing heat. Joel Parkinson opened up this afternoon’s action in sterling fashion against wildcard Wiggolly Dantas.
The stylish natural-footer threaded barrels on both his backhand and forehand to net the highest score of the round, an 18.27 out of a possible 20 to advance directly to Round 3. "I was just looking for a couple corners, and a couple of waves that were like medium scores, so to to find a couple of good ones and get good scores is unreal,” Parkinson said
