With a break in the ASP World Tour and finally a bit of free time on his hands, John John Florence spotted an eight-foot swell on the charts, made a couple calls to his North Shore crew, and is on the HNL-PPT flight that night. Lucky for us, staff photog Brent Bielmann was right there with him.

With several trips to Teahupo‘o under his belt already this year, imagine damage John John could do if the upcoming Billabong Pro Tahiti gets walloped by a big swell…
