Medina’s 2018 Title win puts him in the ultra-elite company of multiple Title holders Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, Andy Irons, Tom Curren, Damien Hardman, Mark Richards, Tom Carroll and John John Florence.
Medina came alive in the back half of 2018, putting together back to back wins and Tahiti and the Surf Ranch, then backing it up with a domant performance in Europe. Congrats, Gabriel!
British Big Wave Surfer Tom Butler, 29 years old, rode a spectacular monster wave in Portugal’s Nazaré during the recent giant swell of December 14th, as footage continues to emerge. Locals described this wave as the biggest “bomb” of the day in what was the biggest swell of the season.
English press is calling this the new world record, onlookers and some surfing experts have said he had beaten the previous record of 80ft – set in November 2017 by Brazilian Rodrigo Koxa. The record is unlikely to be confirmed until WSL Big Wave Awards, which take place in April 2019.
