The French Open was on Tuesday in a single day in very good conditions in the morning. Kauli Vaast had the best result of the day at 1is circle (15.87). In the final, Tahitian had to stand out from opponents. The final score was Kauli 12.30, ahead of Tiago Carrique 11.74. Maxime Huscenot, who grew up in Reunion, finished third with 11.54.
“I’ve won the French Open twice because it’s in good waves every time. This morning the conditions were good, the summit well defined. It allows me to train for next week with Quik Pro. It’s great that I was able to participate, I did several series that allowed me to see the point well so I could read the wave. When we see that they have 50 years to train on the spot right after the competition! The fact that I surf four in the water is great, I was able to get far on the table, I was able to do three series to the finals, so it’s really great! “, Kauli told the French Surf Federation.
In women, Maud Le Car of Saint-Martin and Tahitian Vahine Fierro climbed to 3rd and 4th place in the competition, behind Pauline Ado and Tessa Thyssen. Next meeting for Tahitian at Quiksilver / Roxy Pro (October 16-24).
