Julian Wilson, start-up spin in France

And here we examine the round one backside rotation of Mr Julian Wilson, owner of many enviable things that include but are not limited to: A maxed passport, a charming girlfriend, a runner-up trophy from Lowers, the momentum of a high-speed roll, and one of the most dazzling acts on tour right now. Today in the opening round of the Quiksilver Pro, France, Jules faced Gabs Medina, by whom he was beaten two years ago here, but whom he beat last year in Portugal. After winning the heat (thanks to this roter), Jules was a little perplexed by some priority confusion at the end, but was very talkative on the subject and visibly excited to be in France and to be killing it as much as he is. And who can goddamn blame him?
