@John John Florence vs @Leonardo Fioravanti HEAT REPLAY from The Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro presented by Corona – Round of 32.
Florence Continues To Set The Standard
With overlapping heats running in the Men’s Round of 32, John John Florence continued to elevate the game with a turn only he can do. Pioneered at Margaret River and on the North Shore over the years, the layback hack under the lip is proving to be a point of differentiation that nobody seems to have an answer for at the moment.
Florence defeated Leonardo Fioravanti with a 16.04 heat total, applying that searing carve through which he generates speed rather than scrubbing it off. Fioravanti actually had the highest wave core of the heat, knowing he had to go all in if he was to beat Florence at Main Break, but he couldn’t find a second wave, while Florence, with the aforementioned turn, was able to convert waves that for others might have been 6s into 7’s and 8s.
"It [the turn] definitely feels different to me, I think now I kind of have more of an idea of where I want to do the turns. A lot of it goes into body placement, where you place your weight, too," Florence told the WSL after his win.
"Every winter I spend at home … We have like four different waves that are like this and I get to spend a lot of time figuring out how to do turns and harness that speed, because that’s the whole thing, you have so much speed, it’s really hard to control that," Florence continued.
