FLORENCE WINS & MANUEL RUNNER UP AT DRUG AWARE PRO MARGRET RIVER.

John John Florence has won his 3rd consecutive WQS event, (Sunset, Pipeline & now Margret River) dominating the Hawaii-esc conditions all week to become the 2012 champ, walking away with $40,000 & 6500 ratings points.

“I’ve been having a lot of fun this week,” Florence said. “The waves are a lot like home, even the wind when it’s good for airs is a lot like Hawaii. The waves have been fun in all of my heats. I’m so stoked to win. This gives me a lot of confidence going into Bells because I hear the waves are similar”.

Malia Manuel has also continued her amazing Rookie Season & Australian leg (5th Roxy Pro, 2nd Newcastle 6* WQS) finishing runner up to last years defending champ Courtney Conologue. The second place finish pushes Manuel to 1st on the Women’s World Ranking making her the most consistent female in the world so far this year.

John John & Malia will both travel to Bells Beach for the Rip Curl Pro ASP WT event starting April 3rd thru 14th.
