Often touted as a surf prodigy, John John was born in Oahu and lives there still today. In addition to his recent back-to-back wins at Pipeline in 2011(Da Hui Backdoor Shootout and Volcom Pipe Pro) John John has earned four NSSA titles, was the youngest surfer to ever compete in The Triple Crown of Surfing, has graced the covers of Surfer, TransWorld SURF and Surfing as well as countless pages of other magazines.
John John’s style is a bit of a throwback and he lets his surfing do the talking for him. Considered one of the best amongst his peers and his potential appears to have no ceiling…he’s only just begun. – Nixon
I bet John John will be checking the tide with the Nixon Lowdown.
