“This was a pretty funny moment from a few years ago. Travis Rice was in town and we went to sail around on the east side and race my Hobie 16 against Jamie O’Brien. We started surfing a few waves and took the wrong line on this one. We pitch-poled pretty hard, snapping the mast in half and stranding ourselves in the bay.”
John John Florence just shared this gnarly sailing sequence featuring snowboard legend Travis Ric. The pair were racing against Jami O’Brien when they pitch poled attempting to surf and snapped their mast. Travis sailed the world in a much larger catamaran name Flacor which he actually sold to John John. It’s circular. It’s like a carousel. You pay the quarter, you get on the horse, it goes up and down, and AROUND.
