Quiksilver Pro France stalls during second round because of poor conditions
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.-- Pete Thomas
