The day before the Quiksilver Pro kicked off in Hossegor, France. The most surreal happening occurred as I was watching the surf. Two nuns made their way down the shoreline, both with huge smiles on their faces. Purely enjoying the beauty and power of the waves. Who knows, but those waves throughout the competition sure looked blessed to me.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
