It starts with fireworks in black and white. They burst in sky, when suddenly color flashes in and right-handers heave onto a shallow Balinese reef. For the first half of the clip, getting barreled looks easy. It is not, but at 1:45 John John Florence makes it seem as elementary as tying a shoe. Loop. Swoop. Pull. The fireworks return with a crop of airs from Chippa, Dylan and Bal. Chippa’s bigspin at 2:33 was good enough to be a grand finale in any other clip. But in this one, it’s just another blast.
