Possibly defying the laws of physics, Gabriel Medina does a backside backflip, lands on one foot and continues surfing. Medina just won his Third Quiksilver Pro France with the trick you are going to want to watch over and over again. The video is queued up at 1:45 minute, but the whole vid is worth a watch.
The 23-year-old Brazilian surfer is now in range to win the World Title and is ranked third overall on the Championship Tour behind the leader John John Florence (Hawaii) and seeded second Jordy Smith(South Africa). Carissa Moore out of Hawaii won the Women’ s Roxy France Pro putting her at a 4th overall position on the tour going into their last stop at her home turf of Hawaii at the Maui Women’s Pro in November.
The World Surf League (WSL) has more videos and updates on the tour.
