We’d like to give a huge shout-out of congratulations to one of our own, John John Florence.
If you haven’t heard by now, John John just snagged his first WCT contest win at the Billabong Rio Pro in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil with an impressive 16.37 tally over Joel Parkinson’s score of 11.44. To get to the victor’s podium, John John also went through a series of heats against Josh Kerr (in the semi-finals) and another one of Astrodeck’s favorites, Julian Wilson (in the quarter-finals).
This puts John John as #6 in the current ASP rankings while Parko is on top as Numero Uno.
The guys will be heading to Fiji next. And we can’t wait to see some more of the John John Florence Show. World Title this year? There’s a good chance. Future World Champ? That’s a definite.
Here are some frame grabs from the Billabong Rio Pro. Congrats again, John John!
