WATCH NOW: VELA

YETI and Parallel Sea present
"Vela" a series by John John Florence.




Being the number one surfer in the world means you spend a lot of time in the water. For John John Florence, that time isn’t spent on the surf board alone. In this four-part series, we follow Florence’s progression from dinghies and Hobie Cats to his 48-foot gunboat, VELA, culminating in his first trans-Pacific voyage: from Hawai’i to the Northern Line Islands in the South Pacific.


WATCH EPISODE ONE:




Having always wanted to do a trans-Pacific trip, a surfing injury created that silver lining, the opportunity to make this dream trip happen. In this episode, John John and crew set their sights and charts on the Line Islands, a long stretch of islands along the equator about 1000 miles south of Hawaii, between there and Tahiti.






WATCH EPISODE TWO:


The anticipation of the trip is behind them, and the vast blue sea is all that’s ahead. John John and crew tighten their teamwork, fight some sea sickness, and keep busy exploring their playground, the Pacific Ocean.




"IT’S THIS MIXTURE OF EXPLORATION AND THE CHALLENGE OF GETTING SOMEWHERE."
