A day on Mars


@hokuleawwv leaving Haleiwa on their way to Kauai. They just recently finished a voyage around the world, inspiring a lot of people including me along the way.


It's crazy when Mother Nature gives us a reminder about just how unpredictable these storms can be. I know things are rough down in the Caribbean right now and I hope the people are doing okay. I'm really stoked on the things that @wavesforwater is doing to help out. Every little bit of help counts.


Thanks to everyone who posted about ocean health this week!! The posts have been super inspiring. This is one of my favorites so far, two sisters Melati and Isabel Wijsen who founded @byebyeplasticbags in Bali. It is cool to see the youth making a difference! 🙌 #getoutthereandlearn


I want to learn more about the people making an impact on ocean health. If you know of a friend, person, or group that you think should be recognized, post a photo or video, with a little story about what they are doing, and tag #getoutthereandlearn They can be focused on marine debris clean up, making art from recycled plastics, or even just picking up trash on the beach. Excited to see what you guys come up with!! I will choose my favorites and send a gift pack (@hurley @stancesocks @nixon_now @dakine @vertra @yeti @pyzelsurfboards @futuresfins ) to both the person that posted, and the person or group that is recognized.


This is why I love the ocean, there is no limit to how you can ride waves and connect the elements around you. Always something new to learn! #getoutthereandlearn @koasmith @parallelsea


The process of learning is the fun part. So get out there and learn something new! #getoutthereandlearn

Welcome home Hokule'a! After three years and 44,000 miles, with only the wind, sun, and stars, you have truly inspired me and so many others to explore and preserve our oceans! #MalamaHonua 🙌🌎 @parallelsea / @erik_knutson_




Part of an inspiring conservation effort today with local fisheries and @tavaruaislandresort. @kellyslater And I helped transport and reintroduce a Giant Clam to a reef we all surf over here in Fiji. Giant means over 500lbs, and shells that grow to 6 feet! But they have become a threatened species due to overfishing and changes to the coral reef. Wanted to say Thanks to the locals who showed us the program. I left feeling pretty inspired to see how I can do more to support our own marine ecology back in Hawaii. Check out @wsl and @parallelsea for more videos. #worldoceanday


So excited the Americas cup is finally underway!! Thanks again @oracleteamusa for inviting us to sail with you guys last year. We're rooting for you to keep the cup in the usa! 🏆⛵️⛵️⛵️


I had such a great time in The West this year, so happy to score fun waves and have such an amazing event! Thank you for all of the support. WA is a very special place full of great people, I look forward to going back soon!
Also a big thanks to @brandonwasserman @rosswilliamshawaii @erik_knutson_

If you can't beat em join em. @filipetoledo @parallelsea



Some fun waves this afternoon! @parallelsea


I could not be more grateful for all of the talented people who helped me with this series, and especially my @hurley family. They have supported me through so many of my dreams and goals, from the World Title, to filmmaking, to being able to live exactly how I want. It goes without saying, but I am looking forward to the future! The final episode of Twelve is now live on


We are the aliens and we are here for the honey @nathan_florence @konaj_


What a great day today was getting to win an event at a wave where I competed for the first time in my life, with all my family and friends there with me. I couldnt be happier and I couldn't have done it without all of the support from everyone here. Thank you @alexandra_florence @nathan_florence @i_van_florence_ @kiron_jabour @brandonwasserman @eli_olson @koarothman @koatree @kidpeligro @konaj_ @erik_knutson_ @peteyjohnson_ @pyzelsurfboards @lauryncribb @spencerklein_83 @whoisjob this is a lot of tags but honestly not nearly all of them. 📸 @badboyryry_ Thank you again everyone


Another one my highlights this year getting to go sailing with @oracleteamusa and being able to drive for a few laps was crazy! I really admire the work and training these guys put into what they do, I can't wait to watch them win the Americas cup. Thanks for showing us great time down in Bermuda 📸 @_samgreenfield_


Coming home to surprise of all of my family and friends blocking Kam highway was one of the best moments of my life. Winning the world title was my goal but this is what really made it feel real more than anything else. Thank you everyone who has been a part of this year and for all of the support!


We share this earth together and it is our job to protect it together. It's sad to see what is happening with the Sioux tribe at Standing Rock. Lets help take a stand!


Look mom I did it !! Haha @alexandra_florence What a crazy day today was for me, this has been my dream since I was a little kid growing up in Hawaii watching Kelly and Andy battle for world titles and to win one today is crazy I'm still in shock! I couldn't have accomplished it with out all of the support I've had through out my surfing career @alexandra_florence @nathan_florence @ivflorence3 @brandonwasserman @erik_knutson_ @pyzelsurfboards @lauryncribb @eli_olson @kiron_jabour @koarothman @koatree @peteyjohnson_ @spencerklein_83 @patchy_o @peterkingphoto @bededurbo @blakevincentkueny I could carry this list on for along time but this is a start to everyone I'd like to thank. Most of all this has been one of the most fun years of my life and stoked to get to enjoy it with my friends and family!
