It’s been beachbreak barrel heaven here for the Quik Pro France today, and reigning champ John John Florence is the man who’s so far danced closest to perfection. He packed the tube, stalling masterfully before weaving towards the exit, then laid down the hammer on the end section. The judges, for their part, laid down a 9.93, several of them reaching for the 10. Whereupon John and his chauffeur, their attention perhaps on the score being announced, got catapulted off the ski (0:30). Anyway, there’ll be no repeat of the Hurley Pro then for John John, who leapfrogs Round 2 and the wee Irish assassin awaiting there.
