The Quiksilver Pro France is the ninth stage of the surfing world championship that takes place every year in October in Hossegor since 2002. The competition brings together 36 participants, all professionals of all nationalities, and lasts about ten days. The beach where the events taking place, “the Gravière” has a marine topography such that it allows surfers to engage in practice on the best waves in Europe.
This great annual sporting event is the largest of Hossegor and can attract up to more than 15,000 spectators in one day. The crowd comesnot onlywatch high performance sport, but also comes to meet stars of this extreme sport. They can come see the great Kelly Slater, 11-time world champion and adored! But also the French number 1 surfing Jeremy Flores, who won two stages of the round world and dreams of consecration. Finally, the young Australian Julian Wilson, world champion in 2013, and always on the podium since joining the Tour Championship, elite of world surfing.
From a tourist point of view, the Quiksilver Pro France allows hotel professionals as well as local economic actors to find an almost summery dynamic activity. The historic hotel is ideally situated in Hossegor hotel “Les Hortensias du Lac”. Its location between lake and ocean allows you to stay in a privileged and quiet just steps from competition site. This is certainly the best placed hotel, closer to the competition and enjoying a delightful setting. For the occasion, the hotel sets up a special offer: Early booking “Surf World Championship” at preferential rates, and you may be able to meet some of participants during the breakfast, on the terrace of the solarium or at the edge of the turquoise blue heated infinity pool with panoramic views where we like to believe that the bath extends into the marine lake of Hossegor.
The competition will take place from 7 to 18 October 2017 and will again offer an exceptional show this year.
