The Quiksilver Pro France has been going on the last few days, the usual suspects have been getting through, although a wave starved heat saw Mick Fanning exit early against tour veteran Taylor Knox! It just goes to show that there are no walk throughs on this tour anymore!

They have done it again, Kelly Slater and Owen Wright were the last men standing once again at the Hurley Trestles contest this past week! I'm Starting to wonder whether these two are like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal of a few years back where they made every Grand Slam final together with daylight to the semis [Mind the pun about the tennis tour].

What a massive few weeks in surfing, Teahupoo fires like never before, Kelly Slater takes home the bacon against Owen Wright, then in the richest surfing contest ever surfed, Owen Check mates Kelly! The rest of the 44 must be wondering what has happened to there year now, it seems it's the Owen, Kelly show, with Kelly out in front ad Owen following on the ratings for second.

Do yourself a favour and watch this footage, i just saw it then for the first time and it blew my mind! I have seen Chopes angry before but i'm going to go as far as saying that is quite possibly the most run for the hills worthy i have ever seen it! I remember when i first heard of Teahupoo, there was a four star QS there in maybe the year 2000? Don't quote me on that but it was some time around then.
