Another Reason To Just <3 Nathan Florence
The latest installment from the middle Florence, Fine, Thank You, sets Pipe on fire.
When I still lived on Oahu I spent an afternoon at the Ehukai sandbar failing to rip alongside Nathan Florence. He was still a kid, hadn’t started to make a name for himself, was surfing well but not blowing minds or anything.
A couple cute young girls paddled out and yelled to him, “Hey Nathan, where’s your broooooooother?”
I’ve got two younger brothers, we’re equally close in age, and our relationship was fraught with all sorts of weird emotions and competitiveness for pretty much most of our lives. I’m fairly sure they hated me until we were firmly into adulthood. Because I was the first child, the good student, the one who accomplished everything first. The resentment didn’t make sense until I was older, but I get it now.
So I remember thinking, “Man, it’s gotta be hard growing in John John’s shadow. What’s that gonna do to this poor kid?”
Apparently, it really motivated him. Or I was just projecting my own baggage. Either way, god damn, is Nathan on fire or what? Each clip unreal, every time better than the last.
Fine, Thank You is no exception.
