  • VECTOR

    Completely lost for words! Incredible!

  • Max

    Mad height, Mad move. Love to see him pull one coming out of an 8 foot pipe barrel – cmon Gab..

  • nikolas klam

    What would be the score for such a move???

  • Erik

    10 for the greatest flip seen yet. Minus 100 for the worst music heard yet.

  • leroy brown

    The Maradona of professional surfing.

  • Kyle

    No doubt this guy is a great surfer but this video is getting way too much hype. This was done ages ago by one flynn novak and one ricky basnett – i suppose anything can be hyped with the right sponsors.

  • Rob

    I would love to see starts to copy Dane Reynolds instead of F. Novak… Just saying. Awesome punt anyways

  • Vance

    If I have to hear that shitty fucking dubstep in one more clip from you industry clowns, I will personally mail you a bag of feces!

  • blair

    The Portugal judges would give him a 2.3 for this move.

    Alguém (talvez o Charles…) deve falar para o Medina que se quiser ser campeão mundial, deve SURFAR para direita também. E surfar no sentido AMPLO da palavra e não apenas ganhar baterias com aerial em esquerdas. Depois, os gringos colam um apelido como ONE TRICK PONY, e a gente fica brabo. Mas se continuar assim, serei obrigado a concordar. ACORDA MEDINA E VAMOS SURFAR DE VERDADE… Será que ninguém tem coragem de falar a verdade?

ACORDA MEDINA E VAMOS SURFAR DE VERDADE… Será que só o Medina não viu as direitas ou ele acredito que pode ganhar em Snnapers Rock, Jeffreys Bay e Bells com aerial para a esquerda??

    Great maneuver! I am glad to see Gabriel Medina being able to handle no only beach breaks but heavier and hollow waves as he showed it in 2012. Whether he has the potential to be a world champion, no doubt, but I would say the same about John Florence, Calohe Andino and other kids of about the same age. There is a long way ahead and a lot of hard work and discipline before he gets to the top.
