The Kid Who Would Be King

Oh it's fun to look back in time, especially when we're talking about parents' prom photos and two-time surfing champions. But mostly two-time surfing champions. 

As an ode to John John's second consecutive World Title, TheSurfNetwork re-released a video of John produced over one decade ago. The clip details his infamous 12-year-old Mentawai Islands journey (landing JJF his first of many magazine covers), his initial Pipe Masters entry (he was the youngest ever to compete in this event, at just 12) and this ominous quote from the kid himself: "I just want to surf and hopefully maybe get on the CT, and then have fun."

If that wasn't the biggest understatement of 2005, I don't know what is!
