The young cub has turned into a lion.
John John Florence just won the Quiksilver Pro France. We know that it is done and dusted and all eyes are already angled towards Portugal but we couldn't help ourselves to take a second to reflect on such a good photograph from the final. The Hawaiian combo'd Brazilian Jadson Andre with a 16.00 heat total and showed how in sync he was with the conditions all event with handbrakes like this under juicy French lips. Building on the momentum he has carried through the past three events - a third in Tahiti, second at Trestles and now a first place finish in France it appears the young cub has turned into a lion. Have mercy on all who stand in his away.
