John John Florence has suffered a few injuries while free surfing at Cave, near Ericeira, in Portugal.
The Hawaiian prodigy decided to take on one of the most dangerous surf peaks of the Portuguese World Surfing Reserve.
After winning the Round 1 heat at the Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2012, John John Florence headed to the iconic wave to enjoy a few barrels with Ruben Gonzalez and a few other locals.
Cave was pumping heavy two-meter barreling waves. "We could only get out of two out of ten waves. When we were out the back, John John asked me how could I surf in there and where he should take-off", Gonzalez told Surf Portugal magazine.
