John John Florence might be the most exciting surfer in the world today. Amidst his hallmark 2012 competitive season, the 20 year old jetted to Tahiti and Mexico and Indo and other mysto spots, he was on a mission for perfect waves.
The film is out on iTunes fairly soon, but if you happen to be on the North Shore of Oahu this Wednesday come by the Banzai skatepark at 6:30 PM for the premier and hang out with John John himself.
Early in the year he purchased his own Scarlet RED camera and decided to take his friend Blake Kueny along for the ride to document his surfing and travels. As the trips progressed so did John John’s surfing and the clips he was nailing. So he decided to make a short film titled Done.
The 23-minute profile film includes a cast of John’s best friends including: Nathan and Ivan Florence, Kiron Jabour, Matt Meola and Albee Layer. Some of the most progressive surfers in the world just happen to be John John’s friends and family, and these trend-setting, limit-pushing, death-defying surfers ride for the top brands on SWELL like Vans, Sanuk, O’Neill and Dakine.

Just as John’s year started out with a bang (winning the Volcom Pipe Pro) it looks like it will end with an exclamation point with his first self-produced film, and his campaign to defend his Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Title. Watch the Sunset slab-fest set to run the finals tuesday 12/4 here.
