These here are the scenarios that would see the 2014 World Title decided at Pipeline, and not Portugal. For some perspective, Medina’s lowest finish in the 2014 season was a 13th, in Rio (twist!), so the odds favor him notching another great result in Peniche. Then it’s up to the No. 2-5 surfers in the world to match and extend this drama to the North Shore come December. And if he wins the Rip Curl Pro? He wins the world title, and we meet the first Brazilian world champ.
