For most people, October means playoff baseball, golden leaves and decorative gourds. But for surfers, it signifies the start of the European leg and the Quiksilver Pro France. Crisp, long days. Beachbreak barrels. All the bread, wine and cheese that doesn’t even get you fat because you’re surfing so much. It’s a beautiful season to be a surfer and, with a world title race heating up, an even better time to be a fan. The Quikislver Pro France waiting period runs from October 3 - 14. France is nine hours ahead of California. Adjust your sleep patterns and cheer on the Monster team at worldsurfleague.com.
