Nathan Florence is one of the most exciting surfers of the modern era. With brother JJF on track for world tour domination (though, potentially out for the season, ruptured ACL), the field for cutting a path on the free-surf route was open for someone to step in. So why not the world's best surfer's younger brother?
This is Mr Florence's adventures through Tahiti, Mexico, Panama and Nias, chasing the heaviest waves in the best possible conditions. The result is 14 minutes of (mostly) where you'd rather be, mullets, heaving, arms to the sky cylinders, all executed with seemingly minimal effort.
