John John Florence Signed by Vestal

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

john john florence vestal watchVestal Watch just added 15 year-old North Shore surfing-phenom John John Florence as the newest member to their team. They didn’t stop with just John John either, they have also signed John John’s brothers Nathan and Ivan to be a part of their team as well – ‘Signing John John, Nathan and Ivan will help Vestal further their already strong presence within the surfing community.’ says Vestal Surf Team Manager John Oda. ‘John John has already won three National titles in the NSSA and is the youngest surfer to ever compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing on the North Shore.’

Having had the chance to watch John John surf live and in living color, it’s pretty easy to see what all the hype surrounding this kid is about. He’s electric, explosive, and is constantly pushing to surf progressively. Again, this kid is only 15 years-old and already has many of the top surfers in the world paying attention to what he’s doing in the water. He’ll still have to face the challenges of physical growth and needing to get stronger over the next few years though; just like it did for Julian Wilson, I’m sure the added strength from his natural growth will only do wonders for John John’s surfing. Seeing what he has accomplished already in such a short period of time….that’s a pretty scary thought.
