Video: Gabriel Medina’s Massive Air at Supertubos Everyone’s Talking About

This is the video that everyone is talking about at the Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2012 contest. It’s a one-foot wave but Gabriel Medina nearly flies out of the frame. (Check out his air at 0:21 seconds.) If he keeps blasting airs like this, photographers are going to need a wider angle lens.

About the Author


BrentGrowing up as a kid in Virginia Beach, Brent has always been surrounded by water. Sailing, surfing, fishing and skateboarding were his passions and foundation that drew him near the ocean. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA and graduated with a Bachelor's in Communication Arts & Design. Having worked at several companies in Richmond as an Art Director, and living away from the ocean for about 10 years, he and his wife decided to make the move back East with their sights on the Outer Banks. With surfing being his favorite hobby, the Outer Banks was a perfect fit. In 2005, Brent headed back to a more familiar and welcoming beach community and now lives in Kill Devil Hills with his wife and 2 daughters. Brent has run a Graphic Design business (BN Design & Advertising) for over 12 years. Complimenting his Design business during the day, Brent is also an acoustic solo guitarist and plays gigs regularly on the Outer Banks and is also a board member of the Surfrider Foundation, Outer Banks Chapter.View all posts by Brent →
