Put Hawaiian Pipeline prodigy, John John Florence, in the water at romping Restaurants and what do you get? A 10-point ride in pure, Fijian form. His return from injury meant scoring one of the best sessions during Round 2 of the Volcom Fiji Pro, stop No. 4 of the ASP World Tour. John John got the heart-shaped island of Tavarua off its feet, as both surfers scored classic barrels at perfect six-to-eight ft Restaurants.

John John Florence was deep in the freight-training barrels at Restaurants, posting a perfect 10-point ride and 9.80 for astonishing backhand surfing. The Hawaiian’s Round 2 victory punctuated his return to competition following his absence from the ASP WCT since a severe ankle injury sustained on the Gold Coast.
Sebastian Zietz, World Tour rookie from Kauai, snuck through at Restaurants to get him on to the next round. He earned an amazing come-from-behind victory in Round 2 over Adrian Buchan (AUS), 30. In need of an 8.90 with just five seconds remaining on the clock, Zietz drove through a seemingly impossible tube, earning an 8.93 out of 10 for the ride to edge out the Australian goofy-footer.
