Pierre-Louis Costes has claimed the La Salie Pro Bodyboarding Festival 2014, in France.

The first stage of the European Tour of Bodyboard (ETB) 2014 was held in small wave conditions. Nevertheless, it was pretty contestable, with sunny skies and favorable winds.

Despite living in Portugal, the former world bodyboarding champion was playing in home waters and had a cheering support from the fans in the beach.

"Small conditions but a great event. Well done to all the competitors and the organizers. Hope to come back next year," expressed Costes.

Hugo Pinheiro finished the La Salie Pro 2014 in the runner-up position, Ayoub Soussi was third, and Silvano Lourenco kept fourth.
