Gabriel Medina // Lower Trestles // 2:50

Will Gabriel Medina be the world’s first Brazilian world champ? Only Kelly Slater’s performance will tell. With 3 stops left on tour, it’s Gabe’s title to lose. The kid looked looked jagged at the Hurley Pro and rampaged all the way to the Quarters, but you already done seen that. Here’s what Medina did when the judges were looking the other direction. We’d throw a hard 9.7 at the wave at 2:21.
