Flores, Jeremy

Globetrotting European pro surfer; world-ranked #8 in 2007. Flores was born (1988) on Reunion Island, moved with his family to Madagascar at age six and, under the tutelage of his father, the intense young regularfooter worked tirelessly to emulate the body language of Tom Curren and Kelly Slater. He was a prodigy, and by age 10 the French-speaking Flores had already signed a contract with Quiksilver and was dividing his time between Australia, France, and Reunion Island.
