Knifing Into Tubes Should Look Like This
Charly Quivront flexes the mental muscles required for a quality keg.
There are numerous words to describe Hossegor, many of which start with the letter ‘H’. Heavy, Hollow, Heavenly—in this case, huge. Fortunately for Charly Quivront, he grew up in the French beachbreaks and is well aware of the required chip-in technique.
Surfing this wave isn’t easy, but Quivront’s latest clip suggests otherwise. His facile approach stems from the precise lines he chooses. Evidently, Charly’s path selection highlights his local knowledge of the break.
Getting barreled is more of a mental task than a physical one. In most cases, all you’re really doing is going straight—the force required for a frontside hack is substantially higher than pointing your nose down the line.
Speaking of turns, Charly isn’t one to shy away from a lurching section. Kicking out early isn’t an option he even takes into consideration. Every end section gets the same abusive treatment as the rest of the wave.
Unfortunately, Charly Quivront hurt his shoulder and won’t be able to surf for a few weeks. Until then, you’ll have to rewatch this.
