John John Florence has been prototyping his new signature for a while now. The initial concepts came from his favorite F4 Techflex, but his new life on the ASP World Tour and a late teen growth spurt required much more area than he was riding in 2011. Per him, the fin was to be a Techflex, and black. Of course, we added some color. We also added base and reduced the tip area. Drive, release and control were the primary measures, and John’s effortless style proves high marks in each field.
