It was video game-type shit–one of those things you see that just doesn’t look possible. That’s what Gabs does. He does the impossible. And then he topped it off with not one, but TWO claims. One was perfect. The other was almost as ridiculous as the air itself.
Let me just nip something in the bud real quick before I get a bunch of hate-mail. This has nothing to do with Gabriel being Brazilian. It’s got nothing to do with his nationality. In fact, I love his surfing; as far as I’m concerned, he’s going to win another world title or 10. Not this year, but it’ll happen. He’s got the drive, the talent, and contest smarts that it takes to not only surf better than everyone else, but play the game that needs to be played. Medina’s got it all… but that claim told us a little too firmly that he knows it.
