The life of a ‘QS grinder, you chase points around the world in hopes of finally netting enough to make it to the big leagues. And when you’re really down and out on your luck, your best friend will text message you a picture of the waves firing back home. Because, what are best friends for? Anyways, Joan Duru is one of those grinders and its often that he misses the waves back home in Hossegor, France. Lucky for him, he caught a break for winter, jammed back home, and indulged in some local love.
