GromSearch competitor Griffin Colapinto. Photo: Corey Wilson Mick Fanning wasn’t always a four time (said it) World Champion. Mason Ho didn’t just pop out of the womb as the most fun surfer ever. Jordy Smith wasn’t born to the WCT and Westerly Windina wasn’t born a woman. Point is, even the best (and, apparently, most [...]

#Tournotes // Portugal // 3:09

You probably didn’t wake up this morning thinking that you’d spend over one minute of your day watching John John Florence duckdive in a pool but hey, aren’t surprises fun? That’s what we get in #Tournotes from the 2014 Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal. How about those thrusts! In all honesty, how many young women [...]
