The day of a World Title win is one of the most important days in an athlete’s life. Every aspect of the day, from the moment the athlete opens his eyes, through to the training, the warm-up, the focus and the celebration, is unique. It’s special. It’s these moments that culminate in the greatest victory an athlete can achieve – holding that World Title trophy up in the air, and knowing it’s theirs to keep.
On the day of Gabriel Medina’s second World Title, December 18, 2018, we followed Gabriel Medina – from morning until night – and captured those moments. Straight from the North Shore of Oahu, with 8-10 foot perfect Pipe in the background, this is Gabriel Medina’s 2018 World Title win… raw, real and behind the scenes.
