What a glorious feeling it must be to be young John John Florence today -- to be the very best at one's chosen sport/profession/art/hobby/spiritual pursuit, and now to have a giant fuck-off world title trophy to prove it.

“I don’t think I’m the best surfer in the world — everyone surfs a little bit differently," said the newly crowned World Champion after defeating Conner Coffin in the final of the MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal with an exhilaratingly disinhibited display of aerial surfing. "I just like to go surf and have fun."

But secretly he was thinking, "Yes I fucking am! The best, the very best!"
