John Florence is a surfing prodigy, and being one of only five surfers in the Men’s Championship Tour history to clinch two World Titles back to back is a prime example. He catapulted to fame at just eight years old when he fearlessly conquered the most famous wave in the world – Pipeline. But his genuine character defines him far beyond a champion athlete. John is a passionate, down-to-earth soul who loves to travel the world, make films, chase storms, and feels the peak of his happiness anytime he’s in the company of his mom, brother, and good friends.
John John’s top YETI picks
Pour one out for the dry bags of adventures past. While they got us to where we are now, it’s time our dry bags keep our gear 100% dry – in any conditions, every time. The YETI answer to the dry bag is our Panga line of duffels and the Panga Backpack. Waterproof (and airtight), and supremely durable – Panga is particularly tough at the seams and zipper, where other dry bags are most vulnerable. So trust it against the craggy beaches, the rogue fly hooks, and even sharp tools you pack – Panga takes punches and wont’ let you down. Be on the right side of prepared in any adventure with the Panga.
The YETI Rambler® family is tough as hell, and will keep your drinks as cold (or hot) as science allows. With 18/8 stainless steel construction, double-wall vacuum insulation, and No Sweat™ Design, they’re perfect for the deer lease, cleaning table, or just the down time in between your outdoor exploring. Find the Rambler Tumbler, Bottle, Colster®, or Jug that’s right for your next adventure.
The Hopper® was built for those adventures where you want to grab your gear and go. It’s the original 100% leakproof, ice-for-days portable cooler. And because we used materials found in things like HazMat suits and whitewater rafts, it’s also tough as nails. The Hopper is made in sizes to fit any adventure, whether that’s on a wild river in a kayak or a floatplane trip to remote salmon streams.
