With 2 Pipe wins under his belt this season John Florence is making a name for himself in the World of surfing. In a recent interview with Transworld he talks about his love of short boards, Pipe and breaking boards.
When asked why he does not use long boards Florence says ”I’ve always liked smaller boards in the barrel, because you can control what you’re doing better. And you fit in the curve of the wave better, too. When you’re riding a 6’8” at five-foot Backdoor, it’s hard to slow down, so if you get in the barrel, you’re only going to be in there for a little bit. But if you ride a little board, you can stall, and then pump, and stall again if you need to.”
