John John on Big Waves

John Florence’s edits are a fixture here on Shred Sledz, not just because of his surfing — which is predictably mind blowing — but because of the artistry. For example, check out “ALEGRIA”, which documented a trip to Brazil, and seemed to capture something essential about the spirit of the country in a…

Various Vids

Greetings, Shredderz! Here’s an assortment of surf edits that I’ve enjoyed, but that I’m too lazy to write up on an individual basis. Keep scrolling for more. Harrison Roach is towards the top of my list of must watch surfers. His latest film, “Respect Your Mum”, is a full length effort by today’s…

John John Sees RED

Greetings, Shredderz! It might be too late to convince many of you that Shred Sledz is not a John John Florence fan blog. In my defense, Florence’s films are consistently better than just about anything else in the world of surf media. With “RED 10 YEARS PROJECT”, we finally have some insight as…

J BAY feat. John John Florence

“J BAY”, the latest in a long line of excellent edits from John John Florence, brings to mind Claude Debussy’s quote “music is the space between the notes.” When it’s John John at one of the world’s greatest right hand points, you know there’s no shortage of searing frontside carves. That said, I…

Luckily, there is an antidote in the form of “ALEGRIA”, the latest in John John’s ridiculous run of remarkable edits. The waves aren’t great,…

Great Ocean Road by John John Florence

Greetings, Shredderz! By now you should know the drill: if there’s a new John Florence edit, I’m writing about it. “Great Ocean Road” tracks Florence’s travels through Australia in early 2022 for the world tour, as well as some downtime between contests. To no one’s surprise, the cinematography, the soundtrack and of course…

The Last Social Media Roundup of 2022

Greetings, Shredderz! See below for I don’t know a ton about Japanese photographer Hideaki Sato, but I do have a copy of “North Shore 1970-1980”, which is a dope pocket sized book documenting everyone’s favorite Hawaiian proving grounds. Love the photo featured above: it’s so simple and wonderful. One of the things I…

More John John in Hawaii

Greetings, Shredderz! This blog is about vintage surfboards, shapers and John John Florence’s video edits, apparently. But can you blame me? With winter in full swing on the North Shore, Florence’s YouTube activity picks up, and the content is beyond reproach. Check out two recent shorts below:

“The Day Before Yesterday” feat. John John

Greetings, Shredderz! Sometimes, writing about surfing is very easy. Take, for instance, the following scenario: John John Florence drops a new edit on his YouTube channel. All you need to do is copy the link to the video, paste it into a post, and then make sure whatever ensuing word salad you whip…

“Gravity” by John John Florence

Please, whatever you do, don’t call “Gravity”, the new release from John John Florence and Parallel Sea Productions, “content.” I’d rather not refer to it as an edit, either, but sometimes you gotta mix it up. If we’re being precise, “Gravity” is a short film. Maybe it’s just semantics, maybe I’m just a…
