My photos are taken with a little digital camera with a zoom - the results are a bit impressionist. For professional pics and videos of the event check these news links:
Here's what Mangosurf has to say about Easkey Britton, the only woman in the competition: - "Easkey Britton est la seule femme qui figure dans le cercle très fermé des chargeurs invités à l'évènement, elle a prouvé que ce n'était pas qu'une histoire d'hommes!
TRANSLATION: Easkey Britton is the only woman who figures in the very closed circle of "chargeurs" (what's a chargeur? surfer or ski driver? Easkey does both) invited to the event, she has proved that it's not only about men.
Ouch! - where's the surfer?
