It’s amazing that there are boarders out there now that can do stuff in the water and on wheels that my imagination could not even configure on the back of a text book years ago. Jon Florence is at the apex of the boarding polymath pyramid (do n’t try to say that with your mouth full:Ed).

It’s hard not to view him as the ultimate progeny of the Tony Alva, Jay Adams,Wally Inouye, Larry Bertleman, Buttons and  Christian Fletcher surfer/ skater family tree. The rate of progression in surfing in particular will really kick on.
