“I’ve always had a special connection with La Gravière,” Jeremy Flores says. “I’ve been surfing there since I was super young, but I used to feel like I had a love/hate relationship with the wave. I would have so much fun free surfing there, but would seem to struggle in contests.”

That suddenly changed last October. Jeremy won the 2019 Quiksilver Pro France in a rowdy way, dropping the highest heat totals in nearly every round leading up to the final. He had found a rhythm, a zone. He was unstoppable.

“Ever since I won, I feel like I have more of a supernatural connection to the waves here.”

Want proof? Press play and watch one of this generation’s best tube riders do his thing. But before you do, here’s one last note from Jeremy.

“I think the best thing about surfing in winter is being able to share an uncrowded lineup with your friends [like Marc Lacomare, who has a cameo in this clip]. Even though I’m an island guy, I had a day where I surfed for six hours in a five mil. Years ago, there's no way I would have done that — but suits are just so good these days.”

We agree. Now, get to frothing.

Surfing at night can be an amazing experience.

Quiet, tranquil beaches, fantastic scenery, surfing by moonlight (more on that later) is something every surfer wants to do.

Founded in 1961 by Ron DiMenna, Ron Jon Surf Shop is one of the oldest and most iconic stores of its kind in the United States.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, surfing transcended this point and became a way of life, touching fashion, films, and especially music.

It was glamorized in movies like "Gidget," "Beach Party," "The Endless Summer"; made legendary in music from The Beach Boys and Jan and Dean and became the identity of pop culture for the era.
