Something Different For Me . . . . "Space"

Space from John John Florence on Vimeo.

Back in my youth this was me, although I could only dream of being
this good. When I first started, before having a driver's license, my
friends and I used to ride our bikes 4 1/2 miles each way to and from
the beach. We carried our boards on trailers behind our bikes.
All of this at 5:00 in the morning.

Full screen this baby!


  1. One word: AWESOME

    Oh, to be young again without the learning curve.

  2. Great stuff. I never had the chance to do surfin USA..

  3. Curmudgeon, I had a ball surfing in my yute.

  4. John John has been a wonder even when he was a grom. His approach and feel at Pipeline as just a kid was something to behold. The dude is a marvel.

  5. Kid, I surfed for 20 years until I moved to the mountains. I still miss it after 38 years. I did give up that 4 1/2 mile bike ride after Vietnam and lived in Hermosa Beach where I could walk a couple hundred yards to the surf. GREAT FUN!

  6. Unknown, he's the best I've ever seen. I surfed during the days of Dewey Weber.

  7. I like the music in the video clip. Any idea who it is? Thanks!

Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
