Soz Gabs’ fans but he ain’t coming to Portugal to restore order on the tour. 

He’s playing with dogs, logs and Losts in Mareisas, happily. Last week we wrote a piece speculating that Gabby would be joining the tour based on multiple threads of evidence suggesting he was getting prepped for the European leg of the tour. He ordered a new comp quiver from Johnny Cabianca, started training at the gym again, and had various CTers such as Miggy Pups comment “Les gaux. We are waiting for you”. 

After much triangulating, and perhaps, wishful thinking we were sorely disappointed when the WSL released the MEO Pro Portugal heat draw and Gabby’s name was nowhere to be seen. 

We haven’t touched on the drama in Gabby’s personal world too heavily cos despite it being juicy, salacious traffic-driving goss, it’s not really our place to probe in such matters. We’re glad for Gabs to be sampling different fruits after much time chewing the cud on tour. We miss him dearly though. 

Watch him get frisky on SUPs, logs, and Mayhem’s at home and awaiting his devastating return to competition. 

IG caption reads: “I am, I was born, I was raised this way”.
