The semis draw for the Quiksilver Pro, France has gotta be one of, if not the best we’ve seen. Dane Reynolds vs John Florence, and Kelly Slater vs Joel Parkinson. So much on the line! Points! Money! Pride! Which is the stronger motive? If La Graviere offers the big, churning barrels it’s been dishing over the last two days, this’ll be real heated and about as thrilling as our sport gets.
Above, we’ve thrown in a bunch of excellent photos that you might not have seen. Below, we wanna know who you think will be on the podium. If loving speculation is wrong, Stab doesn’t wanna be right.
