Jeremy Flores, the Eric Cantona of the surfing world.
Perhaps without the effortless panache, the memorable turn of phrase, the penchant for inscrutable abstractions….but with the same penchant for attacking strangers, and with a far meaner frontside hook!
The turn, I mean, not the punch. He’s also more likely than most pro surfers to speak his mind and give an entertaining post-heat interview. Did you see him laying into sometime Surf Europe scribe Ben Mondy at the Cascais Billabong Pro last year? Excellent. This short documentary by the magazine Desillusion was filmed during Jeremy’s enforced month-long absence from the tour last year after he gave the judges a piece of his mind at J-Bay. Now he gives us a piece of his mind too. Directed by Desillusion editor Sebastian Zanella.
