John John Florence Wins 2013 Triple Crown of Surfing

Congratulations to John John Florence on winning the 2013 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing! John clinched the Triple Crown title upon advancing through his semifinal heat of the Billabong Pipe Masters, where he earned a second place finish after a well-fought Finals battle against Kelly Slater.

"This is my second Triple Crown but it feels pretty special," Florence said. "The first year, I wasn't really thinking about it. I was young and just having fun. This year, I came into the Triple Crown wanting to win it, but I honestly didn't think I had a chance until we got to the final day at Pipe. This result has me motivated for next year. It's eating me inside how close I was, but I'm still stoked."
