Yes, Gabriel Medina Has Fun!
Soul arches in closeouts, flyaway airs, and all other expressions of exuberance.
Woah. Woah. Woah. Is Gabriel Medina having fun?
Not the usual “severing competitors' heads” fun, but actual fun. Soul arches in closeouts? Not landing an air? Fuck me, the guy kinda let loose for a bit. And it's enjoyable to watch.
Gabe’s style looks more mature, more relaxed. Surfing the home break should evoke an extra sense of confidence, but this is next-level comfort. I’m talking slippers and a bathrobe.
Watch above as Medina stands tall in waves where the rest of us wouldn’t make the drop.
