  1. lol says:

    wonder how jimmicane feels about the banger at the end? u should be embarrassed with urself

  2. Jimmicane says:

    Yeah I was pretty confused by that decision for the trailer. Not sure why I would feel embarrassed though. I told John my opinion on the double grabs in the west oz section a long time ago. Not a big deal though. Positivity. Do em if you like. I still think they should be scored significantly lower than any other air.

  3. Tim Black says:

    He’s like Elvis. Cool as shit, rules harder than anyone else in his era and everyone wants a peice of him. The man. Hopefully he doesn’t get fat and start thrusting his sweaty hips on stage though…

  4. yeah guy says:

    Jimmicane should be embarrassed because he’s a Jaguars’ fan.

  5. keeter says:

    charlie sheen cuz there both are nuts

  6. Alex says:

    He is like Bobby Fischer, because he’s the best there’s ever been at a young age. Now we just have to wait to see if he snaps…

  7. Hawk says:

    JJF=JFK. A young upstart and a true inspiration to his generation. Let’s hope the similarities end there, except maybe for hot blondes jumping out of birthday cakes.

  8. jorge says:

    Bruce Springsteen ’cause he is the boss

  9. slosurf says:

    john john is like charles manson, ’cause he kills! (get it?!)

  10. Austin says:

    JJ = Oprah

    He runs the surfing world. Everybody loves him. He’s gonna be around FOREVER.

    Oh and oprah likes to give stuff away….and John John wants his movie to be given away….to me :)

  11. Nuno Machado says:

    john john is like rick ross becaouse his surf like a BAWSE!!

  12. Stevie says:

    Albert Einstein. Humble, came out of no where (relatively speaking) and re-wrote the rule book on physics (the theory of ariel-tivity and swell=jj pitted).

  13. shawn rash says:

    tony hawk, they were both in the spotlight from a young age, and still never disapoint. they also both seem very mellow, until its time to surf or skate. Then the mad man comes out.
    both so sick to watch. comp or not

  14. Vinícius Maciel says:

    Liam Neeson; because once he gets a wave, he says: “I will look for a barrel, I will find a barrel and I will kill the barrel”.

  15. Evan Walman says:

    JJ is like Marilyn Monroe, Conspiracy states she was murdered as she was having affairs with both kennedys and ultimately knew “too much”. Although this might not be the truth i think JJ Florence shares a similar fate. He knows way too much about pipe, backdoor, draining barrels in general and how to fly on a surfboard (note the difference between periodic airs and air reverses and flight). John John id watch your back, the god of surfing and the mother of the ocean, possibly even Kelly have some plans for you, just hide deeeeeeeep in a barrel. ;)

  16. bob sacamano says:

    JJF is like j.d. rockefeller because he has a monoploy on every other surfer

  17. Chris says:

    Jimi Hendrix because his style and natural talent are unmatched. Much like Hendrix, John John is changing the game is at the forefront of progression.

  18. Daniel says:

    John John is like Tiger Woods (in his prime)…. absolute best at what they do

  19. sean mcgaff says:

    john john is like mozart… they both are musicians…. on in the water and one out of the water

  20. Jah says:

    John John is like Pee Wee Herman, ’cause you’re like, “Whoa, that was a crazy shack he just came flying out of!” Except Pee Wee was doing it on his wicked red scooter.

  21. LENO says:

    Micheal Jackson , he s does everything the others do and a lot of moves that no other can!on top of that he makes it look easy from 3 -33 ft

  22. sunny says:

    john john is like john john. thats a legitimate answer because he is famous, and he’s more like himself than any other famous person.

  23. mARCUS gARVEY says:

    JJF is like Shawn White… Natural athletes, over-achievers, humble, focused, and both have bright futures. (except JJF hasn’t been arrested in hotels… yet, I think)

  24. Nino says:

    John John reminds me Andy Irons ’cause firstally, they are both from the same country, Hawaii and JJ is charging! He has balls of gold! Andy was the King at Pipe and teahupoo, JJ too. They have the same ease in the barrel, and big waves. And when they take a wave, you don’t know what they are going to do. They are both insame, and they are big competitors.
    So even if Andy goes away, John John is here and he is the only that remember him.

    *Sorry for my english, I’m french student

  25. Nick says:

    I’d say JJ is like Michael Jackson, in that early in his career he did what everyone else did, just better (like MJ with the Jackson 5), but now he’s starting to transcend the sport and do things nobody else has even thought of yet (think thriller).

  26. steve saunders says:

    Bruce Lee! Nice mellow and humble, until he you get in his way. Very
    unassuming and laid back then, BAM they don’t even see it coming. Competitors walk away saying, “What just happened?!” feeling almost like spectators themselves…….

    Thank god its surfing and not martial arts, or it would get ugly in a hurry!

    Likely will be the 2013 world champ.

  27. dominic Benjamin says:

    john john is like muhammed ali, because he can float thru any barrel, or over any section and can sting any world title holder… watch out parko.. john johns goin yum yum this time around

  28. L. Timothy says:

    John John is easily comparable to Kenny muthafuckin’ Powers. No one can say it better than the great K.P. himself. Read his quote below, substituting “baseball” for “surfing,” and it doesn’t get much similar.

    “I changed the face of professional baseball. I was handed the keys to the kingdom. Multi-million dollar deals. Endorsements. Everyone wanted a piece of my shit. Just a man with a mind for victory.”

  29. Mik says:

    J J F ?

    Hmmm….

    Like Jim Morrison:

    Never uncool, always understated, and always always full-on…

    Sex as Music = Sex as Surfing…

    Flowing Mayhem.

  30. jake says:

    He may look like a young man with down syndrome, but that doesn’t stop him.

  31. John Fox says:

    John John Florence is like Steve McQueen. John John lives fast, he’s as cool as can be and just loves chillen with his boys!

  32. Farrah Olivia says:

    John John is comparable to Mickey Mantle. He’s A natural who surfs with grace much like how Mickey never worked out and was a natural at baseball. John John’s big airs are like Mickey’s big homers, BOMBS! And John John’s relaxed nature outside the ocean makes him extremely likeable as he evokes a certain genuity to himself.

  33. Rishi says:

    John John is like Michael Jordan cuz Kelly Slater is Bill Russell. John John is revolutionizing the sport of surfing much how Jordan revolutionized basketball. John John is fierce and goes big! Out of the water John is all laughs and smiles, in the water he’s an animal much like how Jordan was in basketball. John John is also more mature , mentally than the rest of the kids his age. That’s why he challenges the Kellys, Parkos, and Fannings of the world. Jordan was also able to compete with Larry and Magic as a youngster when he dropped 63 on the Celtics in the playoffs. It’s not a matter of if John John will win it all, but when!

John John is fierce and goes big! Out of the water John is all laughs and smiles, in the water he’s an animal preying down waves! This is similar to how Jordan was in basketball, a fierce competitor. John is also more mature mentally than the rest of the kids his age. That’s why he challenges the Kellys, Parkos, and Fannings of the world. Jordan was also able to compete with Larry and Magic as a youngster because he was so mentally mature. That is why he dropped 63 points on the Celtics in the playoffs.

  36. Dang3rtown says:

    JJ is clearly the Danny Way of surfing while Slater is the Tony Hawk. Prodigy who is good at everything!
    I saw done BTW, AMAZING SURFING!!! Disappointed with the editing and soundtrack though, especially the gangsta rap in the tahiti part.

  37. Al Luke says:

    JJ is like Lurch from the Adams Family – my answer is something to do with doors and they’re both quiet men of action.
