John John Florence has been a surfing icon for years. Growing up on the sands of Oahu's North Shore, he's been in the thick of the surfing world for well over a decade now. He's 20. He's been riding Futures just as long. The impact he's had on the surf industry over the last few years is unlike anyone else before him. Qualifying for the ASP World Tour and then winning the Triple Crown, three in a row at the Pipe Pro, a World Tour event, Rookie of the Year, the Air-Strike, the Exposure Meter and the hearts of fans the world over, its been a blur of JJF. And have you seen his movies???
John's been prototyping his signature fin throughout the entire span of this run. The initial concepts came from his favorite F4 Techflex, but his life on the ASP World Tour and a late teen growth spurt required much more area than he was riding in 2011. Per him, the fin was to be a Techflex, and black. Of course, Futures added some color. They also added base and reduced tip area. Drive, release and control were the primary measures, and John's effortless style proves high marks in each field.
