Dane and his magic twin finnner.

Fred Patacchia kicks the tail in the smaller conditions.

Dane Reynolds puts his Twin Finner through some pretty remarkable turns.

CJ Hobgood may have lost in Round 4, but maintained his number 3 ranking.

After the wheels fell off at Trestles, Bobby Martinez bounced back with a solid quarterfinal finish in France.

Dustin Barca may not have made it to the final day of competition in France, but he looked pretty impressive in the heats he did surf in.

Despite his sluggish rookie year results, Barca has maintained the cool focus of a seasoned fighter.

CJ steadies himself before his Round 4 loss to Ben Dunn. Despite his early loss, CJ still lies in 3rd place in the overall rankings.

Team Parkinson soaks in a little sun despite being eliminated from the event earlier in the week.

Lock this image into your head - you may not see Dane with a normal board very often.

Kelly fell to the curse of Tiago yet again.

Kelly takes off back down the beach for a free-surf after his loss.

Two in a row. Mick gets the chair up to the podium after his second straight event victory.

Mick was quoted as saying that he'd see Parko n the podium in Europe. Well, Mick did his part, anyway.

Bobby Martinez offers his congrats at a post victory party.

Wonder what Taj is thinking as Mick and Joel discuss things at the after party...
