Winner of the 6 Star Prime Telstra Pro: Hawaii's next big hope for World Champ potential...Sir John John Florence

John John Florence beats Ola Eleogram in the all Hawaiian final to WIN the Telsa Drug Aware Pro at "Margs" River in WestOz

I watched it like 1000's on Oceanic 24/7 Surf Channel 250 and hooted and hollered at JJ Florence's performance throughout the entire event.
A perfect 10 with tons of 9's. He's not only a Pipe Specialist...at all. This young man could win a title for Hawaii, the Good ole USA. And do it in his 'hang loose' shaka style.
Ola Eleogram kicked butt too and should be on the tour with a major sponsor! Sponsors? This guys a gold mine! Gq

One of the most respected surfers on Tour, Taylor Knox has held his place among the elite for nearly two decades. Want to be a better surfer at 40 than you were at 20? Read on and take a notes from Taylor.

Surf with the Best. It’s been said that the best way to become a great surfer is to surround yourself with great surfers. “I think just being around such incredible surfers has helped me so much. You can be around some great surfers and not really feel anything, but then you’ll come across ones that really make you want to be better—like Mick, Kelly, or Dane. Their [World Tour] rating really has nothing to do with it for me, it’s more about respect for what they’re doing on the wave.”...

Sunny skies and picture perfect waves treated competitors and surf fans to an epic day of competition at the ASP Prime rated Telstra Drug Aware Pro today. The call was made to run a full day of the Men’s event to take advantage of the clean 5 – 6 foot (2 meter) surf on offer and reduce the field to just eight Quarterfinalists.

Kaiborg gets clean and comes clean

In 1997, Kai “Borg” Garcia flew from his hometown of Kauai to Brazil where he won the Jiu-Jitsu World Championships. Along with being one of the most respected fighters in the world, he is also one of the most respected figures in the surf industry. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Kai, will all say they were very luck to do so. I consider myself extremely lucky to call him a friend and mentor. Recently, Kai went through the biggest struggle of his life, which nearly took it. I hope this story has as much of an impact for everyone as it has for me. Thank you Kai for everything you have done for me and all of the knowledge you selflessly give away. Enjoy world!

THE TITLE. Who’ll take the 2012 world title? Stab asked four opinion-leaders and received mixed results.

Shaun Tomson, 1977 world surfing champ: As a huge fan of pro surfing, the first event of the year is a favourite – there’s as much pressure on each competitor as if it were the end of the year with the world title on the line and it is good to see who has stepped up their game in the off-season. How the top guys perform out of the gate tells a lot about who will be on top at the end of the season. Generally the winner of the tour will come from the four who make the semis – Adriano, Josh, Jordy and Taj – so I’m going to make my selection from that quartet plus Kelly and Joel. A great start usually translates into a great finish as confidence is like a snowball rolling down the mountain, building in power.

Margaret River was pumping out 6 – 8 foot (2 – 2.5 meter) waves for day 2 of the 2012 Telstra Drug Aware Pro today. The world’s best surfers were put to the test with long lulls, strong winds and big waves to battle in the opening Round of the Men’s ASP Prime rated Telstra Drug Aware Pro.
Kelly Slater (USA), reigning 11 x ASP World Champion, had the crowd on the cliffs at Margaret River in awe as he paddled out for his first surf at this break in 12 months. Slater stayed busy catching a lot of waves, both lefts and rights and posted the day’s highest heat total – 16.60 (out of a possible 20).
