John John’s Florence Marine X is rounding the corner of production and should have its first line available for purchase soon. The catch? Florence Marine X is going with a subscription-based launch. If you want a premium product, you pay a premium price; tell us where to send the money John, we won’t miss a payment.

Also, an inside source tells us there is some friction among WSL athletes regarding certain remaining CT events. The issue revolves around Brazil and its struggle with the Covid crisis; Danny expands on the who, what, and why.

Kai Neville On Working With Mikey February

As one of surfing’s most influential filmmakers, Kai Neville needs no introduction. The most recent addition to his remarkable track record comes in the form of Mikey February’s ‘Sonic Souvenirs.’ Kai elaborates on how a little creative freedom and a muse like M Feb leads to a distinguished final product.

The Shark Problem On Reunion Island

Reunion Island is a gorgeous place to visit. The French-owned Island located in the Indian Ocean is home to stunning beaches and choice waves, but it also has a ramped shark problem. Craig Jarvis explains the Island’s contributions to surfing, the issues associated with consistent shark attacks, and a potential solution for surfers in the area.
