View From A Blue Moon was created by John John Florence and directed by Blake Vincent Kueny; their second signature release since critically acclaimed film, “Done” (2013). For the film, the pair teamed up with award-winning film studio Brain Farm to create a revolutionarily stunning 60-minute feature. “We just wanted to make something that’s cool to us. If everyone else likes it, that’s even better,“ says Kueny. Florence adds, “My favorite thing about this film is how we made it. The toys we used might have been bigger and more expensive but we shot this movie in the same spirit we always have. We spent quality time with family and friends surfing and exploring in my favorite places on the planet. I can’t wait to share the film with you.”

The film follows Florence and his closest friends and fellow professional surfers to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa, Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean. The soundtrack features an array of beautifully eclectic music ranging from an original Jack Johnson track, written just for the film, to Motörhead’s “Fast & Loose” scored to the film’s dynamic closer.

About John Florence

Born and raised on the North Shore of Hawaii, 22-year-old John Florence learned to dominate difficult surf, developed awe-inspiring aerial techniques and established a natural style at an early age. In the surf world he is better known as “John John,” and one will typically hear this name tossed about in any conversation about the future of surfing.

2012 marked John’s first full year on the ASP tour, and he didn’t disappoint – placing 4th for the World Title, taking his first WCT win at the Billabong Rio Pro and winning Rookie of the Year. However, hardly a rookie when it comes to surfing, John is a celebrated wunderkind who broke onto the surfing stage at only 5 years old. He became the youngest surfer to ever compete at the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing at thirteen, besting surfers twenty years his elder, and winning it outright a mere six years later at the unprecedented age of 19 and again in 2013.

John Florence combines competitive surfing dexterity with an impeccable natural ability that is quickly paving the way for a new generation of surfing. Taking many moves from skateboarding influences, his technical skill set and remarkable ability to conquer waves from two to thirty feet make him a fierce competitor whose stock is rising faster than the Banzai Pipeline – where it all started. Despite being touted as the next big thing in the surfing world, John remains incredibly humble, still heading out to surf with his mom and two brothers whenever he can. John is also an avid photographer and filmmaker when he’s not surfing.

About Blake Kueny

Director Blake Kueny has always had a passion for filmmaking and a keen eye for story. Kueny has proven over and again that his talent far transcends his youth. While surfing is his mainstay, Kueny has worked with numerous action sports athletes and in 2010, shot a Red Bull reality series directed by esteemed surf film director Greg Browning. For the past five years, his bare feet have been firmly planted in the surf world. He traveled the world as principal filmmaker for South African pro Jordy Smith, and his short edit of surfer Carissa Moore during her first world championship campaign earned him a Surfer Poll Award nomination at the age of 17. While working on a project with Smith in South Africa in 2011, a chance meeting with North Shore wunderkind John John Florence sparked a friendship and partnership. Born only six months apart, the duo began traveling and filming together and their first offering, the short film Done, was hailed as the best surf film of the year in 2012 and set the stage for View From A Blue Moon.
