It’s social death to admit it but secretly us Brits love the French. Our history may have been pock-marked by wars through the ages but that’s just cos we love ’em like brothers and sisters. Occasionally sibling rivalry spills over into the odd scrap but we still love them.
We love their wine and their je ne sais pas, their food, sometimes even the way they dress .
They also know how to run a great surfing event. The Quiksilver Pro is on now for the next few days so crack open a bottle of Bordeau and watch the action unfold.
Another reason to love the French.
