This weekend, John John Florence landed an air so big it doesn’t look real. You’ve probably seen it by now because it lit the surf world on fire.
What wasn’t shown, though, was what it took for John John to paddle out. “I got so worked,” he says in the video above. “It’s not too bad, though. You kind of just get pounded out… a couple double ups on the head–it doesn’t push you back to the beach, it just keeps pulling you out.”
Although he makes it sound easy, John’s got a little something special up his sleeve. Remember his duck diving technique?
