GABRIEL MEDINA (BRA)  SEIGNOSSE, France (Tuesday, September 29, 2009) - The last day of the Quiksilver Pro France saw 15-year-old Brazilian wonder kid, GABRIEL MEDINA  (BRA) winning the Quiksilver World King Of the Groms Finals in historic style. Medina defeated fellow Brazilian CAIO IBELLI (BRA) when he scored a maximum possible 20-point combined heat score in the final in an unbelievable display of surfing talent. The two perfect 10-point scores were given by the judges, which rewarded Medina's incredible technical ability. Few surfers in the world today can boast such a repertoire of aerial manoeuvres, even fewer can perform this level of surfing heat after heat in a competition environment... ..Medina combined two or more aerial reverses, aerial 360's or 'superman' manoeuvres on the same wave, all day long. Having scored another 10-point ride in his first quarterfinal heat of the day his intention was clear. It would seem the unassuming Medina would be the man to beat, and the man to take home the prestigious prize of Wild Card entries into the ASP World Tour events of the Quiksilver Gold Coast and the Quiksilver Pro France in 2010.
