Have you see Vans Get-N Classic, A Vans Surf Movie Vol.2??

The weather isn't that great and neither are the waves...I'm talking to you America and especially middle America (as I imagine taking a trip to go surfing isn't a cake walk) The weather is mostly overcast I'd say and the only cure for such a day is...Vans Get-N Classic, A Surf Movie Vol.2. Why go to the movies when you can watch one for free dollars and free cents in the comfort of your home? And why would you not want to watch a handful of amazing and talented surfers getting rad all over the world? You may not be able to answer these brain busting questions so call a friend sit back, relax and enjoy!

Today is a great day for John John Florence...he not only killed it in the Rip Curl Pro Portugal it's also his birthday! It is event No. 8 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour and today is resulting in a lot of high scores and drama in the ever- improving conditions. Major shakeups in scores are resulting in a toss up as to who the 2012 ASP World TItle will go to. Considering the conditions of the waves John John has a leg up, best of luck John John and happy birthday.
