John John Florence Continues Exposure Meter Reign
Keeping his Exposure-Meter hot streak alive, John John Florence is taking yet another turn atop the podium. The August mags were flooded with Florence, who nailed the lead across all meters. Kelly Slater maintained his second place standing from July, though Julian Wilson's stellar showing in the Ad arena puts him one good feature away from knocking Slater down a peg or two. Dusty Payne made moves from his 14th place August finish into the top 10, though Dion Agius earns himself mover of the month after a 44 spot leap to make the top 20 cut. Agius' Surfing Magazine cover shot not only played a role in his noteworthy jump in the polls, but also earned DJ Struntz a first-place finish on the photographer front. Struntz barely edged out Seth Stafford with his epic TransWorld Surf cover. Channel Islands continues its logo reign, besting meter-mainstays Volcom, Nike, Quiksilver, and Red Bull for the win.

Coming off his second place finish in last month's edit meter, John John Florence knocked Dane Reynolds out of his first place position, though Reynolds is only one solid feature away from taking back the top spot. Slater, Jack Robinson, and Dusty Payne round out the top five, with Payne's 12-page Pro Spotlight feature in TransWorld Surf earning him the fifth spot, a huge jump from his 23rd place finish in August. Mover of the month Dion Agius' Surfing Magazine cover and 10-page photo spread entitled him to a respectable sixth place spot in the edit poll.

Florence, Florence, Florence
Once again, it's John John for the win. Also making their marks on the August Ad scene were Julian Wilson and Owen Wright, who held down their respective second and third place finishes in the July Ad race. Josh Kerr rode his Rusty ad campaign right into the fourth spot, while Kolohe Andino maintained his position rounding out the top five.
Logo Wrap Up:
The Logo War stayed solid this month, with the last month's top five keeping this coveted company static, though Quiksilver has upped the ante and moved up into a tie for third with Nike. Channel Islands still lays claim to first, with a solid lead, while Volcom trails behind and Red Bull lags into fifth, losing some ground since August.
Photographer Wrap Up:
With Struntz taking Surfing Magazine's September cover, and Stafford nailing the shot for TransWorld SURF, Carey fell from his reign atop the meter, landing squarely in third place. For his part, Noyle aired one spot to knock Glaser out of the top five.
