The Cascais Billabong Pro rounded up the 2014 European QS season with a final day of action in Guincho where Flores and Bourez could potentially net the European Title. Even Jérémy Florès won in Round 2 against Joan Duru, it was Joan who claimed the ASP Europe Title at the end of the four competitions of the European season: Lacanau (5-star), Pantin (3-star), Sao Miguel (Prime) and now Cascais (Prime).

Duru succeeds to Flores, who claimed the european Title last year. It’s his second european Trophy after 2009, with a runner-up finish in Azores and a 9th place in Pantin. However, he had to wait until the final day of the Billabong Pro Cascais to be sacred, thing made further elimination of Florès and Michel Bourez in the quarterfinals, the last two contenders for the European Crown.

Like last year, France realizes the double man-woman ASP european win, after Pauline Ado won this trophy six weeks ago, at the end of the 6-star in Pantin.

Joan Duru stills in the race for qualification for the WCT 2015 and is now 21st in the ranking, however he lost two places in the WQS rankings.
