John John Florence Opens Strong

It takes a lot to make John John Florence flustered. In fact, he's nearly unflappable. Even dropping a 9.50 ride to open a heat against the World Champ, as No. 23 Italo Ferreira did in Round One, is not enough to deter the laconic Hawaii-bred surfer. Any anxiety he may have been experiencing was unapparent, as Florence took the early blow from the Brazilian in stride, using patience and wave selection to methodically climb back into the heat, then socked it away with aplomb on his final ride.
