John John Florence Is A Ticking Time Bomb
And Pipeline’s his opportunity to explode!
Pipe Masters is just days away – and likely, you’re just as fucking excited as we are. The finale of the season and crowning of our champ has come down to a very critical point in 2017. John John Florence vs Gabriel Medina, with Jordy Smith and Julian Wilson in with a slight chance. The Ain’t That Swell hosts have tackled the big issues in the latest Ep and Vaughan (basically) admits to having surfed in Wonka’s pool.
The hosts made a few things clear: The surfing world deserves an all time performance from John. Going in with the yellow jersey, winning pipe and the title on home soil would be an extravagant wrap-up. Jordy Smith’s had an underwhelming performance in Portugal and they wanted more. Gabriel Medina has hairless nipples. And Nazaré, is deadly. This is a really sexualised and tongue-in-cheek episode from our moustache donning duo.
