JJ, doing the improbable.
John John Florence is the best surfer in the world.
Allow Episode 2 of “Twelve” to reinforce that fact. There is no one in the world who ties together progressive surfing, tippy-toe tubes, and a ferocious rail game as well as John. The two waves from 1:26 – 1:47 are proof of that.
The way that John attacks waves upwards of 10 feet never ceases to amaze me. While most pros would be tapping lips or doing carve-downs, John is launching into the air and landing in the transition. He’s a different breed of surfer, to be sure.
There’s not much more I can say about this video to be honest. Just watch and be amazed.
