John John Florence put in the performance of a lifetime at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro, setting a new standard for powerful rail surfing in big, open-faced waves. This was all the more spectacular, as he’d come into this season after an incredible run the previous year, when he won the Eddie, The Triple Crown, and the World Title. No one would have blamed him for easing up. I nstead, he found an entirely new level of brilliance, with a commanding run through the event relying on huge carves – exited, somehow, with more rather than less speed – the likes of which had never been seen before in competition. This event is being celebrated in this week’s edition of WSL Rewind, where you can relive one of the most naturally-gifted and compelling surfers in history absolutely toying with one of the most challenging waves on the Championship Tour.
