Groomed from childhood to be a surf star, John John Florence is delivering on the surf world's expectations as he enters adulthood. Raised at Pipe his game is next-level, as freakish as Slater & Jamie O'Brien. In addition to his tube game he's brought skate to surfing the way few others have, save Christian Fletcher. Few match John John in tech and height, and he nails them as easy as one would during an afternoon session at the local skate park. JJF wraps it all up in a casual, pleasing style. The world can't wait to see where he goes from here, either dissinterseted pro a la Dane Reynolds, or whether he turns on the competitive lavaflow like fellow Hurley team mate Julian Wilson.
