If you surf the same break every day, you’ll see the same crew. And sometimes, you’ll make friendships that will move from the surf to the turf. Jason ‘Mini’ Blanchard and Dane Reynolds met surfing the same break when Dane Reynolds was a lanky 15 year old with ‘an insane backhand’.

As the 2014 Quiksilver Pro France comes to an end, we wanted to reflect one more time on the magical little region known as les Landes. For two weeks a year, Hossegor and the surrounding area becomes a playground for both the world's best surfers and the common folk looking to mix and mingle with the elite wave-sliders. To illustrate the point, we tapped Surf Europe Mag's editor-in-chief Paul Evans and legendary European photographers Bernard Testemale and Timo Jarvinen .
