“@Koasmith got me into the Wim Hof breathing method – it’s a great way to stay calm, centered and focused. Here’s the basics as I learned them from Koa, but make sure you do this with an expert first and never do it alone before free diving, etc.” – @john_john_florence ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 1. Sit in a comfortable position or lie on your back. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 2. Start with 30-40 breaths in / out through your mouth. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 3. Let out all your air and hold your breath for as long as you can. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 4. Breathe in for 10 seconds. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 5. Repeat steps 1-4 for 3 rounds. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Hit the link in our bio to watch this technique in action, then pick up your own copy of A Field Guide to Waterman Things by John John Florence at a surf shop near you. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #GetOutThereAndLearn — ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Koa’s Gear: Hurley Phantom Bora Board Shorts ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ John’s Gear: Hurley Desert Trip T-Shirt
Chapter: Surf 🏄🏼 Section: No Grabs ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ "Jamie O'Brien was the first guy pushing me to take my hand off the rail in a backside tube. He'd yell at me all the time about it at Pipe. The best way to get comfortable with the no grab is to start with a traditional grab on the takeoff. Once you set your edge, let go. It's really a comfort thing and works best in barrels that are more predictable, which is why you see guys doing it a lot more often at spots like Teahupo'o versus Pipeline." – @john_john_florence ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Hit the link in our bio to learn how John goes hands free, then get your own copy of A Field Guide to Waterman Things at a surf shop near you. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #GetOutThereAndLearn
"The huli seed is very important because it is the seed for the next generation of taro. But not all huli are equal. Only the best are chosen to be planted. This new design honors the tradition of growing taro and the practices of each family, perpetuating that important aspect of our islands” –– @sigzanedesigns. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ "The name of this design, Ka Huli Wae, literally means “the selected seed.” Figuratively, I gave this name to mean “The Chosen One” with a nod to John John, of the next generation, to represent our islands in the waves around the world." ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Hit the link in our bio to explore the JJF x Sig Zane Collection.
"I first met John John pounding poi at Kānewai. This keiki of Hawaiʻi, raised in the waves and the earth of our islands, was a natural! Several months later on the North Shore, John John showed me the taro he had planted from the huli (seeds) he had gathered at Kānewai. It was a surprise I was not ready for, but I was so stoked!" – @sigzanedesigns ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ "We took him to Waipiʻo Valley when he visited us in Hilo and we spent a day in the loʻi. Pulling taro from the waters, we shared a tradition. John John and I stood in the quiet waters, inspired by place. We got to take the taro home with us, knowing that the “huli” could be planted." ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Hit the link in our bio to explore the JJF x Sig Zane Collection (and swipe left to see the board shorts). 🌱⚡️
