Unfortunately John John Florence has pulled out of the Quicksilver Pro 2013 on the Gold Coast.
It is believe that Florence suffered an ankle injury in the expression session held yesterday.
Florence’s third round opponent, Adam Melling, will move straight through to the 4th round.
This is a big blow for Florence, who was thought to have a great chance to win the world title in 2013. With surfers allowed two throw away results at the end of each year, this will surely have to be one. It is not the ideal start to the year, mounting pressure on John John to surf consistently for the rest of the year.
