I saw him surf in a heat with Kelly Slater at RipCurl Search contest in San Francisco. He was just 16 but he could pull air and especially aerial 360s like nobody I've seen. He made it look like the easiest thing to do in the world. In fact he won the contest. Kelly won the world title.

+juanolaizoladiaz LOL, that's a great way of explaining how it looks! Lucky for him it doesn't look like he's carrying that brick between his knees :D

Did you watch the Hurley Pro this week? I'll bet Medina wishes that he did more variety of turns instead of just tying to do the same one better and better, you know. That's the only thing I can think of that kept him from getting the score in his heat Tanner Gudauskas.

If you watched the event, what do you think about the score on his 2nd scoring ride?
juanolaizoladiaz

he just surfs like holding a brick between his showlders... its a good technique but boring to watch i understand what u mean

+Dave Mills Look at his Dad Charlie, would you want to make him even grumpier? LOL! I think he has many of the things you've listed, but still occasionally don't enjoy the way he surfs an entire wave. There is just something about his style that is...clunky? choppy? I'm not sure of the proper adjective, but he does too much hooping and stepped bottom turns for my liking.

Please don't get me wrong, he is an incredibly talented surfer and very skilled, but the part of his technique I dislike reminds me of how Jadson Andre used to hop frenetically when he 1st came on tour, remember? If he would get rid of the hops and draw a deep&smooth bottom turn it would do wonders for him. He should watch Julian Wilson's bottom turns and flow and he'd be unbeatable...that and take off on the bombs. He's won his title, now it's time to take off the gloves :)

Aloha, and thanks for listening to my coffee talk, I guess I cannot wait for Supertubos already! P.S. What do you think of Italo Ferreira!?! Thate kid rips eh?

(pre-teahupoo 2014 contest by the way). Where do you get that I'm talking bullshit? That contest was insane. I was all onboard with Medina, he should have had a 20 in the final. He surfed unbelievable. Stop acting like I'm out to hate on brazilians. I mean honestly, why do you even surf if you're only going to go get pissed off at people? I surf to get stoked, not to talk shit. Also, stop acting like Medina is the only brazilian charger, Marcio Freire has the biggest balls of anyone I've ever met and is one of the most elite big wave chargers but no one gives him any shout outs.

 See I hate this kind of comment like saying Brazil can't surf big waves, this kind of bullshit, Hawaiians love to say bullshits like that just because you guys have huge waves in the island... Guess what? Medina just won big Teahupoo, deal with that, and say again that we don't chage...

Don't you love when people fight over who's the best surfer they've never met? This air was sick, Bruce's airs are sick, every pro's airs are sick. Gabriel is pretty close to competing for a title which Bruce has never done, and Bruce charges GIANT surf which Gabs hasn't really done yet. Though to be fair, if you watch Campaign vol. 1 Bruce is boosting it pretty frikin high off of double overhead surf.

+Nikolas Degas so my personal opinion reflects the way i surf? I don't claim to be the best surfer out (you probably do) but what i do claim is that my head is nowhere near as battered as yours ahahahah!

+Nikolas Degas Just, what..? How do two and two relate? Youre so irrelevant. Ive personally never seen someone air that high before, so does that mean the past years I've surfed are suddenly meaningless and I dont know how to stand on a board any longer?

I would put that in the very high range that most pros can do during a free surf.  JJF had a bigger air in a contest.

Though Medina is a cry baby, he did beat Fanning in Portugal hands down.

When I race and look for that air section, I get so bloody excited. I enjoy going for airs, and that's what the air freaks are doing, having fun. Unless they're planning to go pro, there are no rules (do what makes you happy). You can't expect others to conform to your standards, because you don't like the way they surf. Just focus on your own surfing and enjoy it... Anyway, IMO the most stylish move ever is a fast, tight and perfect 'figure-8' roundhouse cuttie rebounding right off the top.
KX5Kat
KX5Kat - 8 years ago
I get your point, but what is style? A pleasing style is kinda subjective, I think. When I see guys doing those 'safety' turns on the right part of the wave, concentrating on style, it just comes across as boring, to me. Whether you're doing airs or carves, critical moves done well always looks stylish to me. Surfer with awesome style IMO, Fanning. When I'm on the wave, I don't think or care about being egotistical, a wave is my playground to do whatever I bloody please.

Saxon Morris

i was just thinking that. besides this guy, everyone now adays has no style. they ruin a perfect good wave by just boosting airs all day with no style. haha like honestly, tthats not cool at all. its cool when kolohe or kelly slater airs over a section closing out, but airs for no reason are kind of egotistical
