When you’re a young surfer capable of completing near-impossible aerial tricks with ease (like a backflip), the YouTube community is going to stop and take notice. When you’re capable of transitioning that limitless aerial repertoire – along with a power game and barrel-riding prowess – to the contest scene, which is being broadcast to millions around the world, and taking down the top surfers in the process, everyone will stop and take notice. Win a world title at the age of 20 (and the first-ever from a surf-crazed nation) and not only will everyone take notice, but you'll never be forgotten. Such is the story of Gabriel Medina, the wunderkind from Maresias, Brazil.
