Growing up on the North Shore of Oahu, Nathan Florence is used to the early morning wake up calls. At first light, he prepares for an epic dawn patrol surf at Backdoor. After slicing his hand open on the reef the previous morning, Florence gears up eager for more at the infamous break.
The sunrise on the seven mile miracle makes the early morning wake up call worth it. Not to mention the conditions are glassy. His dues seemed to pay off well, Florence catches wave after wave of clean right handed barrels all morning long. The long awaited winter season has started to show face on the North Shore. If this is any indication of what we will see during the start of the Championship Tour in Hawaii then the stakes will be high.
