Gabriel Medina

Surf

When you’re a young surfer capable of completing near-impossible aerial tricks with ease (like a backflip[above]), the YouTube community is going to stop and take notice. When you’re capable of transitioning that limitless aerial repertoire 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. Such is the story of Gabriel Medina, the wunderkind from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Upon qualifying for the WCT during ...

    The show is about to begin. Planeloads of the best surfers from around the world are landing in Honolulu and making a b-line for the North Shore. It’s that time of the year when the Pacific gets lively and the resulting storms send phenomenally sized and shaped waves to the Seven Mile Miracle. Throaty barrels and mega airs and hideous wipeouts result – and Oakley, alongside Surfline, are going to be paying close notice to it all.

During that European leg of the ASP World Tour – with stops in France and Portugal – the guy did some eating. “I was at like 185 and I’m usually 175,” he says over the phone, while scarfing down a snack at home on Kauai. “I had a full belly going. But two days back home and I was back to normal.” Non-stop surfing and a healthy dose of hanging with the large Zietz clan will do that. In the next couple days he’ll take the short flight to Oahu and post up in the Oakley House on the North Shore, right in front of Off the Wall. The Triple Crown officially kicks off today, with the waiting period beginning for the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa, the event Seabass won last year and the one that ignited his miraculous run to World Tour qualification and the Triple Crown title. For now, he’s just cruising. He’s seeded into the Round of 64 at Haleiwa, so he has time, s...
