John John Florence Strikes Back Against Filipe Toledo

The World. No. 1 refused to falter after Filipe Toledo edged him out yesterday in their Round Four "heat of the year." Today, in much slower conditions, ten-point rides were not in the cards. Florence took advantage of every opportunity to produce decent scores. His highest scoring ride came on a close-out right. John took a few quick pumps, flicked his board above the coping, and rode out clean, earning a 7.73. The Jeep Leader's ability to adapt earned him a slot in the Semis against Keanu Asing. Regardless of the outcome, John will be wearing the yellow jersey in Portugal.
