French Barrels of the Day: Luke Munro and Andy Irons

The chips were stacked heavily against Luke Munro in his round two match-up against Andy Irons – a past three-time champion here at the Quiksilver Pro France. Luke scored the wave of the event so far and got blown out of heaving forehand barrel en route to a win over AI.

"I felt pretty comfortable out there from get go," Munro said. "It's sort of like home at Straddy so my plan was to go out and get a lot of waves. I think (on my 9.77) I got a little greedy. I probably could have hung in there a second longer, but I wanted to make sure I could get out too."
