What does Hawai'i mean?

15/10/2019, International, Surfing, World Surf League, Article # 29552145

Where does Hawai'i get its name from? Who coined the term Hawaii? The answer is unclear, but there are a few valid theories.

Some might know that Hawaii has several nicknames. The official popular name is "The Aloha State."

But the famous Hawaiian islands are also known as "The Pineapple State," "The Paradise of the Pacific," and "The Youngest State."

Jeremy Flores Wins 2019 Quiksilver Pro France

Jeremy Flores Wins 2019 Quiksilver Pro France

12/10/2019, International, Surfing, World Surf League, Article # 29545431

It was the final day of the 2019 Quiksilver Pro France. The waves were well overhead. The wind was crisp and offshore. The sun had just risen and the sky looked beautiful. Jeremy Flores was in the first heat and found a perfect tube on his very first wave. 

 

From that point forward, it was pretty clear that it was Jeremy’s day.

 

He dropped the highest heat total in every single round, beating Jordy Smith in the Round of 16, Ryan Callinan in the Quarters and Jack Freestone in the Semis to earn a spot against Italo Ferreira in the final. 

 

And, of course, he started that heat with the same strategy he’d been employing all day: Standing in tubes. Within five minutes, he put a 9.67 on the board. 

 

Jeremy continued to do what he does best: Stand in tubes. The crowd went wild with every wave and by the time it was finished, Jeremy had put up 15 points and became the first Frenchman to win the Quiksilver Pro France. The trophy will look good next to the brass from his other CT wins at Teahupo’o and Pipe. 

 

In an emotional post-heat interview, Jeremy dedicated his win to Pierre Agnes. The beach was filled with cheers, tears and beers as the sun began to sink into the Atlantic. 

 

What a day. 

 

Also, we have to give a shoutout to Leonardo Fioravanti for making the Semis in his first event back from a shoulder injury. Nice work, boys.

Jeremy Flores and Carissa Moore have taken out the 2019 Quiksilver and Roxy Pro France in Hossegor.

The finals got underway at La Gravière in solid six-foot-plus surf at high tide, groomed by a light offshore wind.

The conditions were tricky. The majority of waves were breaking near the shore, and surfers had to time the kick-out moment flawlessly.

Kelly Slater is undoubtedly the best and most successful competitive surfer of all time.

The Floridian has been competing on the Men's Championship Tour (CT) since the ASP World Tour days when there were no online broadcasts or social media channels.

Despite turning pro in 1990, Slater would only kick off his triumphant campaign and career in the elite of surfing in 1992.
