Gabriel Medina Lands First Backflip in Competition!
Medina makes the jump into hyperspace
Oh dear: Gabriel Medina just made the jump into hyperspace. Two large air-reverses established an almost unassailable lead in his Round 2 heat against Alex Ribeiro, and were swiftly followed by one of the most absurd airs ever seen in competition -- a giant backflip, only marginally off-axis, and the first ever stomped in a WSL jersey. 10s across the board, within seconds. Momentum's a funny old thing, and Medina's found some.
