This monochromatic footage of John John Florence has never seen the light of day. It was shot at the height of John’s 2017 World Title race with Gabriel Medina, which John would later win at Pipeline after Jeremy Flores beat Gabby in the Quarter-finals.

In this footage, John John is in sublime form. It was a time before his knees began betraying him, and before the pandemic, when a string of world titles looked inevitable for the Hawaiian.
