Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 May, 2014 - Capbreton, France - The Swatch Girls Pro France and Pro Junior will return to the iconic beachbreaks of Seignosse/Hossegor come August 20th to celebrate the highest level of women’s professional surfing during an exciting five days waiting period.
With 6-Star ranking points on the line, this event will once again serve an opportunity to the World’s Best to either secure a maiden qualification for the Elite World Championship Tour or maintain their position amongst the QS Top 6 and re-qualify.
Traditionally a busy summer week along the South-West France coastline, the Swatch Girls Pro France event window brings excitement and draws large crowds to watch the biggest names in surfing and numerous up-and-comers battle it out in quality waves and warm waters.
"I've won it the last two years," said defending champion Courtney Conlogue, "So it's one of my favourite events for sure. To get three wins in a row would be an absolute dream."
A few surfers will also have the privilege to surf on home soil with the likes of Pauline Ado (FRA) and Johanne Defay (FRA) current WCT competitors leading the charge and perennial threats Justine Dupont (FRA), Maud Le Car (FRA) or Alize Arnaud (FRA) who will also be looking to impress and satisfy the crowd’s hopes for a local hero.
The ASP 6-Star Swatch Girls Pro France and 2-Star Swatch Girls Pro France Junior are scheduled from August 20-24, 2014 in Seignosse/Hossegor, South-West France. For all results, photos, video highlights, press releases and LIVE webcast, log on to aspworldtour.com.
