CAPBRETON, France – Jeremy Flores (Capbreton/New Caledonia, FRA), 21, has hit Australia last week, the only French surfer of the ASP Top 45 getting back to work to prepare the 2010 ASP World Tour season opener, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast.


The French prodigy, a former ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) champion in 2006 and ASP Roookie of the Year in 2007, went on rehabilitation in France after an ankle and foot injury forced him to pull out from the last three events of last year’s ASP World Tour, but is now ready to hit the line-up again.

Despite missing the Billabong Pro Mundaka, the Rip Curl Pro Search and the Billabong Pipeline Masters, Flores finished his 2010 campaign ranked inside the requalifying group, an impressive result for the 21 year-old phenomenon.

Coming back from a long break that kept him out of the water (October, November and December), Flores is back in good form to get things going again and be ready for the 2010 ASP World Tour launch on the Gold Coast of Australia, at the end of February.

“I am really happy to be able to get back in the water,” Flores said. “My foot feels good and that long break from competitive surfing gave me the opportunity to do things that I usually can’t do. Therefore, I think that injury was a good experience for me.”

Flores, who got back to surfing in the Canary Islands in January, seems to be finding his way back to his best form and will be much awaited for his 2010 start.

“I felt pretty good during that quick trip to the Canary Islands and I needed to spend time in the water,” Flores said. “I am super motivated to get back to work and start off the 2010 ASP World Tour well with the first event in Australia.”

With another three weeks before the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast kicks off on the Gold Coast of Australia (Feb. 27 to March 10), Flores will be surfing, training physically and will spend a few days with the French national team who is currently on a training camp in Australia as well.
