WE wish John John Florence would Begin Again to surf, but tragically for all you fans of flair the graceful wizard from the North Shore will not be rolling out of the start gates at the Rio Pro today.
Instead he is upstaging the event PR with another injury time edit directed by Blake Vincent Kueny and his good self. Hopefully he’ll be back in the saddle for Fiji, but for now here’s JJF plus friends and family: Nathan Florence, Ivan Florence, Kiron Jabour, Koa Rothman and Eli Olson.
