“It’s all in the core,” says John John about his duckdive regimen in the newest #Tournotes video, Portugal edition. Yeah, well, alright. Come to think of it, duckdive training is probably the most useful thing to employ heading into the winter. All you need to replicate John John’s feat here is a finless board, a nice warm pool, and the lungs of a dolphin.
But John John isn’t just a trainer, he’s a stellar coach too. “Stay deep and go wide,” He tells Brett Simpson, just before Simpo’s surprise heat win over Gabriel Medina adding, “Go outside but stay inside.” That’s some advice alright.
