In this installment of John jOhn FLorence’s series Twelve, the Hawaiian gets introspective about his passion for sailing and its cleansing qualities.
Being an international surf star must take its toll. That’s one of the reasons that John prefers life on the open seas — no paparazzi, no people to judge him, and most importantly no cell service. This disconnection from the modern world forces John to “be present” and “see the world for what it really is”. Such zen!
Heading into the tail end of a world title race — one that he leads by a precarios margin — John will likely use this safe place to collect his thoughts and finish the job that he’s started.
