In an event filled with upsets, seeing crowd favorites like John John Florence and Kelly Slater lose early in the draw, Brazilian Gabriel Medina put together some excellent performances and was able to overtake 2012 ASP winner Joel Parkinson in the final.
Medina's victory makes him only the second goofy footer ever to win at The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast Event and puts him in an early lead for this year's title race. This being the first event of 2014 however, it's still anybody's game.
