John John Florence Is The 2016 WSL World Champion

What an incredible year for John John Florence, from winning one of the most prestigious big-wave contests, The Eddie Aikau, earlier in the year and now wrapping up his world title campaign in Portugal.  I think that everyone was pulling for Florence to win it this year, and to watch his reaction when Conner Coffin took out the last remaining title contender, the collective surfing world breathed a sigh of relieve.

Now that John John has that first world title under his belt, I think that we are officially starting the new era of competitive surfing in the WSL.
