    John John Florence (HAW) ;
    "It was definitely a scary heat, there were a lot of good waves coming through and he's a really good surfer. I just wanted to be on the same peak as him when I was in priority and kind of play it safe. I was so excited, the wind was blowing into the lefts and I was going so fast on that first wave I just had to hit it. I thought for a second I had it but I landed way too much into the flats."
