John John Florence is on fire. If you were to look up “momentum” in the dictionary right now, a picture of John John is all you’d need to define the word. If the World Tour season ran from July through June Instead of April through December each year, John John would be blowing the field away and locked in for his first title. Then again, my Dad always says “If your aunt had balls, she’d be your uncle.” Moral of the story: There is no picture of John John in Webster’s and the World Tour doesn’t start in the middle of the year. So while we can’t crown him the 2015 Champ just yet, pre-Snapper seems as good a time as any to call the year-end result.
So mark it down. Juanito Florence will be your 2015 World Surfing League Champion.
