John John Florence and French flava!

Will the Quiksilver Pro, France lift off in a few hours after a string of laydays? We shall have an answer at first light. But for now, please enjoy John John Florence, of Hawaii, throwing a Pyzel over a French shorebreak. After falling behind Miguel Pupo (but above Michel Bourez) in round one, John John fought down Wilko in round two to firm-up a round three slot against Hawaiian pal, Sea Bass (who you might say is responsible for lighting a fire under John in Bali and helping him step up to the world's greatest alley oop). Between skating at Jeremy Flores' warehouse and cruising the streets, John's been keeping wet and juiced for when competition resumes, which no one can really wait for, right?
