Missing Pierre Agnes: Sea search suspended for Quiksilver boss

Authorities are searching for Agnes after his boat was discovered run aground and empty.

Quiksilver was founded in Australia but is now part of Boardriders, a California-based apparel group.

Agnes, a great surfer and fisherman, knows the area and waves really well and would have done the trip thousands of times so everyone is somewhat stunned. We are concentrating on working with the local authorities on the search and rescue effort and supporting Pierre's family.

According to the World Surf League, Agnes left Capbreton Harbor at 7.30am on Tuesday and his boat was found two hours later.

Rescuers then suspended the search on Tuesday evening, with the search operation due to restart on Wednesday morning.

French authorities are desperately searching for the chief executive of a top USA surfwear brand after his boat was found washed up on a beach. Agnes served as the head of the company's France-based headquarters before taking control of the company in 2015.

Surfing legend Kelly Slater took to Instagram to talk about Agnes' "profound effect" on him and the sport. Later in the morning his boat was recovered on the beach near his hometown and Pierre has not been heard from since.

They added: "Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family all at this time, as well as the search and rescue teams".

"I love this man", Slater wrote.

Agnes, who has been with the company for nearly 30 years, recently oversaw a deal which combined two of the world's best known beachwear brands.
