Breaking Point: Quiksilver Pro France 2011

The Quiksilver Pro France 2011 was full of action this year, as per usual - big moves went down, but not without some big breakages too.

These photographs and video succinctly highlight the paradox
currently facing surfboards: on one hand, toxic materials (mainly PU/polyester resin & EPS/epoxy resin) provide the perfect properties in a surfboard that allow high profile professionals to execute the most progressive moves surfing has seen to date, whilst on the other hand they simply snap.
