Straight Sex Appeal: Gabs Medina For GQ Brasil, Again

A crude Google translation of Gabriel Medina’s recent GQ story headline (the one they show online) says, “The truth is I hate to lose, hate it!”

Which as a fan of the WSL or Gabby isn’t really news. You don't win two World Titles if you're okay with silver medals or fourth place ribbons. If you’ve ever seen Gabby in a lineup, you know he navigates it with smooth aggression—a true wave bandit.

He’s also that same handsome prick who spends his New Years Eves surrounded by models and superstars. And we all know about his very public friendship with Fútbol kicking pal, Neymar Jr.

Plus, let’s be honest, the 25-year-old looks good on camera. While keyboard warriors are going to have homophobic slights with the tiger sweater and Michael Jordan earring, these are our highlights.

Gabriel is a megastar, and he doesn’t give a fuck what you think of him. A trait that’s not dissimilar to one shared by the late, great Andy Irons.

Here's a crudely translated quote from the GQ piece:

"I was born here [in Brazil ], I wear earrings, I like to listen to a pagoda, I feel different. Sometimes I stop to think: my life is really crazy, right?" One day I'm here in Maresias, barbecuing with my old friends, the other I'm in a Thiaguinho show, then I'm going to dinner with Lewis Hamilton, and the other week I'm going to be in Paris, at Neymar's birthday party."

Ladies, gentlemen and everything in between, come meet at Gabriel Medina in his latest shoot for GQ. An unapologetic shoot for a man who needs craft no apologies.
