… John John Florence.
Can you believe it! This morning, Tony Hawk (the grandaddy of skating!) dropped in on Mr John Florence’s midday coffee at Lofty Bean in Encinitas, and handed him a Kustom shoebox with $50k cash in it. The 19-year-old Hawaiian’s winning ticket? A big and perfectly-landed frontside stalefish spin. In a decision made by you, the people, John beat Chippa Wilson, Ryan Callinan, Matt Meola and Albee Layer. Spending 10 days on a boat with the sole purpose of innovative surfing is good. Landing the best air and scooping $50k is better. Congrats, dear John.
