Begin Again. Short Film By John John Florence

Mom John must be proud. Her prodigal sons have added film making to their bag of tricks that range from Triple Crown title, to big wave chargers, WCT rookie of the year, and even pro skaters.

This film is bittersweet for John John fans after he withdrew from the Billabong Rio Pro to nurse his nagging ankle injury. Thank you Florence bros, for giving us our fix of this next level S#IT!

John John Joins Hurley

After riding for O’Neill since age 6, the 20 yr old Hawaiian now rides with a Hurley logo on his boards. The details of his new contract remain to be seen, but industry predictions valued his annual market value at 4 million dollars. He showed deep gratitude for O’Neill’s support, and credits his mom aka “Mom-John” for managing the negotiations that attracted bids from every heavy hitter in action sports.

Hurley and John John have wasted no time developing his signature performance wear, which we expect to match his unsurpassed innovation in the water. Enjoy his welcome edit that follows John’s prodigal ascent to the pinnacle of the surfing world, and pushes the limits just like his new hi-performance Hurley gear.

As part of the Nike/Hurley family, his skyrocketing popularity will put the pressure on him to bring the world title back to Hawaii like Andy Irons. The fans are already psyching on social media, and campaigning for a dominant sophomore season on the world tour.
