John John Florence is a two-time world champion who grew up on the North Shore of Oahu.
At the age of 13, John became the youngest person to compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing and just six years later he would win his first world title.
John’s surfing is in a league of its own; he effortlessly pulls off freakish airs and maneuvers with athleticism and style.
He made an incredible comeback from injury to qualify for the Olympics in a Pipe Masters showdown with eleven-time world champion Kelly Slater.
This piece is part of the exhibit “Golden Dreams” a surfboard installation created to honor and celebrate the first US surfing team to compete in the Olympics.
