Gabriel Medina defeated Joel Parkinson to win the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast 2014, at Snapper Rocks.
The Brazilian wonder boy is the first Brazilian and only the second goofy-footer ever to win the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. Medina took out the title by a very narrow margin: 0.06 points.
Parkinson opened the final with an impressive tube from behind the rocks, which would earn him a 9-point ride. The Australian would quickly back up the ride with a high 6, while Medina would search feverishly to log scores on the board.
The first ever artificial wave pool in Sweden will be built in Varberg.
Fun Surf Town will be a water park with built-in Wavegarden technology. The small Swedish coastal town will feature a 300-meter wave pool pumping left and right rides.
The infrastructure will have car parks, locker rooms, restaurant, cottages, and many other water attractions. Fun Surf Town will be built just inland from seaside, near two popular surf breaks: Apelviken and Lajet.
