The sport of surfing has more than its fair share of talented young wave riders, but very few prodigies. John John Florence, then 13, has been on the surf world’s radar for more than half a decade, and during that time he’s proven that nothing is impossible. Florence, who grew up on the North Shore of Hawaii is a permanent fixture at Pipeline, the sport’s most treacherous destination. Riding with death-defying aplomb, he continues to do things on a wave that were previously thought impossible for someone of his age. John John is definitely having fun today as he clinches back-to-back World Champion Titles.
