Quiksilver Pro France stalls during second round because of poor conditions

September 24, 2009 |  8:16 am

Organizers of the Quiksilver Pro were unable to complete the second round today because of poor conditions, but some heats were contested and among the upset victims in the ASP World Tour event at Seignosse, France, were French standout Jeremy Flores and the event's defending champion, Adrian Buchan.

Flores lost to Spain's Aritz Aranburu while Bucnan, an Australian, lost to South Africa's Greg Emslie.

The surf was five feet but currents were strong and made for sloppy conditions and low heat scores. Competition might resume Friday morning. Meanwhile, above is a video featuring first-round highlights and notably the performances of Mick Fanning, Patrick Beavan and Kekoa Bacalso.

The Quiksilver Pro  is the seventh of 10 World Tour events. Australia's Joel Parkinson is the ratings leader.
